" Girl at the Piano "











  Shirley
Kirkes Mar


Energetic, enthusiastic and adventuresome are characteristics that describe Shirley Kirkes Mar's art. Her work, which she describes as "expressionist," exemplifies fascination with and reverence for the figurative form. She uses bold strokes and colors to imbue her subjects with both motion and emotion. The suggestion of music unconsciously resonates from each painting. You can feel a dancer or animal engage in a realistic participation of a dramatic moment. The sustained, pervasive sense of time, the tilt of the head, the body extension, breathes life into the awareness of physical talent. Click here to read more about the artist.
