Brian Kirk is fascinated by the compelling and delicate balance between human intent to direct desired outcomes versus the inevitable surrender to Nature’s process of erosion and rebirth. His art harnesses reclaimed steel that conveys industrial prowess and raw, bold energy. But there is also an ever-present acceptance of natural chemical reactions that–with time–enable simple elements of water and oxygen to disable even the strength of steel. The ebb and flow of tides, changing phases of the moon and evolutions of patterns in Nature are frequent themes. After receiving fellowships in Japan and China, Kirk was deeply influenced by Eastern philosophies such as the concept of “Wabi Sabi”– the impermanence of life and beauty in aging. His art represents harmonious but opposing forces at work.

From New Orleans, LA, Anne Marchand has been surrounded by color her whole life, it is no coincidence that her painting’s focus is on the interplay of colors. Initially inspired by the Hubble telescope images of outer space, her paintings emulate the same energy from nebulae and galaxies. While the paint flows organically, Marchand has a geometric foundation to her paintings. “These works invite the visual vibration in the eye of the viewer, along with their sense of wonder, introspection, and imagination.” Anne Marchand has been a force in the DC art scene since the 1970s and currently has an exhibit at the International Museum of Art & Science in McAllen, TX.
