Featured Artist – Kirk Marsh
Kirk Marsh is an internationally exhibited fine art photographer and digital artist specializing in portraiture and self-portraiture.
Halfway through college, he found an old program book for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus his grandparents had taken him to when he was 12. Inside that book was a short bit about their Clown College. Being 20, lost, and not knowing what to do with his life, he decided to apply. Fortunately he got into their program and started a 20+ year career in performance and clowning. Since then he has toured the world with his work and has performed his silent comedy show in 53 countries.
With a point and shoot camera in 2007 he took a photograph he liked of a cloud…so he bought a DSLR. In 2010 he started photographing people more intently and fell deeply in love with lighting and portraiture. He completed a 365 Self Portrait Project in 2014 that focused mainly on storytelling and lighting. His love of light and story continues in his work today.
Kirk’s most recent work is focused on community, mental health, and loneliness. Subjects contemplating situations alone in solitude is the theme currently most intriguing to him. Some of the work below is his take on the current state of humanity in general. One of these pieces, Choosing Emotions, won him the Photoshop World Best of Show Guru Award of 2018.
His style is influenced heavily by magical realism and the fictions of our own minds.
