Kay has lived in the Midwest, the south and the west; each place infusing its unique culture and environment into the person and artist she is today.
“What propels me to paint? Cezanne says it best… ‘Emotion is the starting point, the beginning and the end.’ I have an equal appreciation for abstract and representational art, but in each canvas, I see the emotion that was felt while creating it. That emotion is expressed through texture, color, pattern, beauty and playfulness. I am a self-taught painter, observing and learning through exploration and inspiring fellow painters, but primarily listening to a voice within and a passion that carries me forward. I love to watch a canvas transform into an unpredictable balance of emotion, intuition and knowledge.” – Kay Flierl
a little bit about
GREGG IRBY GALLERY
Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta is the contemporary fine art destination for discovering up & coming, regionally, and nationally acclaimed painters. Located on Atlanta’s Westside, Gregg Irby Gallery is not your typical art gallery. With 30 artists represented, more than 300 paintings and works on paper are hanging in the airy 3,400 square foot space with industrial high ceilings, vintage French lights and doors, and epoxy floors. Our team welcomes visitors as guests, rather than clients, encouraging them to casually explore at their own pace. The gallery’s passion and motivation is to launch truly talented and hardworking artists and to present established artists as they should be experienced.
In the 20 years of curating the works of artists, Gregg Irby Gallery has proven to be the source for discovering paintings and works on paper that will resonate for years to come.
