Within painting, I am finding the boundaries between emotions and the people that carry them, and the spaces they occupy, both physically and psychologically.


I will be unencumbered with a burden of pedantically stating, which inevitably obfuscates a sense of feeling, and places the verbal over the visual.


Painting is about the visual revealing the visceral.




         Andrew Watson Kirk was born in Rochester, NY and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ, a suburb of Philadelphia. He moved to Baltimore in 2005 to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he received a BFA in Painting in the spring of 2009. He was recently accepted into MICA's Master's of Arts in Teaching program, which he will complete in 2010. Mr. Kirk is looking forward to a fruitful relationship between painting and art education.
