Magda Kirk: CLOSER @ GR Gallery, NYC

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

There is a palpable thickness in the flesh that Magda Kirk paints. Her nude characters emerge, tattooed, through a smoky haze, like dreams in the night, as they faintly fade off the canvas. But with rippling muscles and a power that defies the haze, Kirk beckons you to touch and feel each work. The Polish painter uses colors that make you want to take a bite out of that flesh, like some toothsome cotton candy. But these are just surface-level observations. Kirk is digging deeper, experimenting with layers of visual obstruction that show characters in the process of self-discovery, awakening, and understanding how the body as a vessel moves through the world.
