The artist was one of the first wave of the young British Pop artists and first came to prominence in 1962.  Throughout his career he has concentrated on the female body and this new show of works created since 2011 eloquently continues this theme.

Kirk’s new large-scale works combine painting and drawing through her use of pastel as the medium for these pieces.  Despite their large size they have a psychological element that focuses the viewer on the subject matter which includes our relationship with nature, the human condition among others.
