Hokusai and the Heyoke
by Nancy Kirk

Using animals, symbols, and references of Native American origin,
the images are combinations of different blocks that come together in monotype prints.
The results are pictographs commenting on the human condition as it relates to our
interactions with each other and the planet Earth.

Nancy Kirk has a passion for abstract and traditional Japanese art. Her studies reach from The California College of Arts and Crafts to the opera in Florence, Italy to the Parsons School of Design. She has worked as a scenic painter for opera and ballet, illustrator, painter, and muralist. She worked to assist in the restoration of historic Broadway theatre murals and was asked to add original work to the Golden Theater in New York City. Her residential mural work shows the influence of the Hudson River School of painters and graces many beautiful homes on the North Shore of Long Island.
