From Kadinsky, to Klee to the great architect and artist Hundertwasser, all have displayed a wonderful expression of nature’s rhythms and celebrated its vast array of color. Hirsch's work brings forth seductive patterns, a flow of energy pulsating throughout the artwork. The nature in the painting is visually alive with many twists and turns in its' travels.
Hirsch comes from the mountainous area of Rockland County New York, and currently resides in Brooklyn. A sweet mix of wildlife and city life, the work speaks with lively energy and motion, numerous stories being revealed. Based deep in natural themes, each painting displays a thoughtful playfulness found in the honesty of seeking out mysteries, the unearthing of ideas. An appropriation of forest and trees, the earth’s bountiful colors are brought to surface in the artwork. A variety of mediums are used and surfaces including inks on paper, oil on canvas, and acrylic on mannequins. Hirsch's most recent work utilizes iridescent acrylics on black etch paper. The depth that the blackness creates is like that of space, with each dot applied being a source of energy. Cells are shown merging, separating and evolving into an array of life forms.
