About Info

Artist Name
Bonnie Kirkley
Artist Statement

I am currently experimenting with what I call architectural abstraction. Using structural forms as a base and then letting color and intuition take over. Abandoning my roots in illustration, and a tendency toward the metaphysical, requires some discipline.  I am just beginning to explore this direction – we will see where it goes.

In addition, I have been organizing an on-going retrospective collection of portraits, in various mediums. This series has its roots in illustration and has continued to morph into larger painted works – mostly oil on canvas.
