Allen Kirsch, a native of Dallas,Texas graduated from the University of Texas at Austin where he studied both fine art and architecture.
While Kirsch has been painting since he was a teenager he turned to it seriously 8 years ago. Commenting about his work he states,” I love working in layers whether it’s light and translucent or heavy and thick. I’m continually putting them on and taking them off. The ‘rush’ comes when the “adding’ or ‘removing’ of a layer brings or reveals something totally unexpected. It’s more about what the paint can or will do rather than what I might be outlining. I’m always expecting a wonderful surprise or revealing.”
Kirsch’s work is presently shown in Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Miami, New York, and London.
He also has an award winning and much published interior design career.
