Richard A. Kirk


"There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion" -- Sir Frances Bacon.

"Richard A. Kirk is a prolific Canadian visual artist and illustrator. His fine art work is centered on images that explore the liminal space between imagination and reality; a pictorial space where a personal iconography manifests in protean forms that challenge conventional notions of the beautiful and the grotesque. Richard is interested in the forms found in nature, the morphology of plants and animals, and the effect of time on materials. Richard works in a number of mediums including: pen and ink, silverpoint, watercolor, and oil. He also works with found materials such as metal, rust, rubber, fossils, bones and text."
