Artist Paul Kirk is inviting readers to the opening of his solo exhibition SIRENS which takes place on September 15 between 6 and 8 pm.
Sirens is an Exhibition based upon the watery theme of the ‘Sirens’ of mythology by Sydney based artist Paul Kirk. The Sirens in Greek mythology were beautiful creatures who were also quite dangerous. They would foreshadow death luring sailors towards them with their sweet songs across the ocean breeze only to become shipwrecked.
The artworks are conceptual portraits of female artists by Sydney-based emerging artist, Paul Kirk. These unique portraits are oil paintings transformed into three-dimensional objects. They infuse sculptural elements to create a conceptual portrait of the sitter becoming a of the subject.
As Paul states “my portrait ‘Subjects’ are current Australian Female Artists that I perceive as having an ‘Edge’ in their art practice and in their personality. This edginess I find fascinating, intriguing and uncanny in the ‘Sublime’ sense. Their innate wildness that could potentially lead to connection to ‘Sirens’ of mythology.
“Aesthetically, my paintings look at how lighting phenomena can alter our perceptions of two-dimensional and three-dimensional representation.”
