My mind tells me stuff that isn’t true. My painting tells me something else. Apparently I am here to become free.The current chapter in that story is “I Acquiesce” opening in Bermondsey Gallery, London 23rd June 2016.

For a number of years I have worked with models and other artists from different medium backgrounds to access intuitive process and experiences. My journey through each collection is like a shedding of restriction. that allow access to more subtle sources of inspiration. Each process requires more trust and a deeper relationship with the medium. Each painting tells me something new in a clearer voice. My notes are all just conversations with them now.

Kirsh received a BA degree in photography from Manchester Met University in 2003, a teaching degree with emphasis on art education  from Brighton University in 2007, and an MA in fine art from the same University in  2009
