Rhonda Goodall-Kirk 
 
Biography | Artwork
 
Rhonda Goodall-Kirk is a self-taught figurative artist who has been actively exhibiting for 15 years.  She is a thematic painter, the telling of the story through pictures is very important.  Rhonda paints humanity at its most vulnerable attempting to capture, on each canvas, one pure moment of emotion.  She has had twelve solo shows and thirty-four group shows and painted well over eight hundred large works.  "My love affair is with oils and canvas, the way the oil paints move across the canvas and the smell that fills the room. The passion I have for painting is insatiable; it oozes from my flesh".
 
 
Artist Statement
William Blake questioned the convention of his time, he was opposed to tyranny and oppression and delved into the notion of Good and Evil and Heaven and Hell, reversing traditional thought on these subjects. His work is extensive and philosophical. I set off on a journey when I secured a copy of "The Complete Works of William Blake." The read was joyous for me, I felt like I was home and was amazed how relevant his words were for society today. My head filled with image upon image, hence the birth of three series based loosely around his words. The second of these series is titled, "Is that trembling cry a song." For imagery in this series I drew on some of the many animals that appear in his poetry.
