MARILYN KIRSCH    Contemporary Abstract Painting and Photography 

About my Painting

My paintings are non-representational. There may seem to be identifiable
subjects within a color field, but they are closer to apparitions than to real
objects or landscapes. My imagery floats between possibilities. It emerges
and then disappears. I use this ambiguity to explore how meaning can be
found where it was not intended.

When I paint, I try to balance my control of the medium with an allowance
for the accidental. Shifts of the image occur during the painting process and
become part of the finished piece. The tension between random acts and
carefully planned decisions is the subtext of the work.



 


About my Photography

Working with digital photography and digital photo-collage is
very different from painting, however each activity influences the other.

My recent photographic work includes the series The City Map Project
which combines my fascination of cities, mapping and architecture with
my painterly view of the world.
