    Victoria Tupper Kirby is pleased to announce the launch of her own blog (website) on which she will display her prints and other art work and keep readers informed of her art exhibits and other news. After launching a blog (www.canyonleap.com) for her grandfather’s work and biography Allen Tupper True: An American Artist – coming out this month, she finally got around to having Alissa Piece design one for her.  I hope you like it!

    Victoria Kirby uses pieces of nature in her printmaking process, mixing representations of trees, leaves, pods and insects with organic materials printed in relief.  Victoria experiments with varying textures by the use of grasses, leaves, lace, bubble-wrap and other materials to make plaster plates, and juxtaposing these with detailed imagery on etching plates. Part scientific botanical study, part playful organic abstraction, Victoria’s observations of nature are thorough and beautifully rendered, appealing to aficionados of both illustrative and relief printmaking.

    …Check out the gorgeous lobby art display titled “Paper and Cloth Transformed II.” The colorful collection of works by Victoria Kirby …  provide colorful geometrics in pieces large and small. Kirby’s new works overflow with nature-driven images.
