Tom Kirby

Tom Kirby’s abstract minimalist, transcendental oil paintings ring true. Kirby captures our delicate moments of clarity. The works are a rich balance of luminescent shimmer and earthy pull. Iconic shapes move steadily upwards, split by fiery reds, cooled and solidified by glacier greens.

“All that we ever have is an eternal, present moment.”

– Tom Kirby, Artist
