I am interested in sculptures and cultures from the past, but not in going back to archaic forms. Every one and everything is evolving. We are all part of evolution. I want to reach further and help things grow.
Michael Sean Kirby's expressive range of art works evokes a game with time, combining a wealth of ancient traditions, modern forms and contemporary materials. Based in Houston, Texas, the energetic sculptor and artist is steadily probing the future while knowing the past is not far behind.
