Amateur musicologist and belated renaissance man, Jeff mis spent his youth in a small minded town at the confluence of three rivers and thirty hells. Art and music were the only link to civilization. There was no
Record shop, bought the records at the Rexall Drug Store, Zappa and Jefferson Airplane were the first of the vinyl bought with money from his paper route.
Road trips and similar flights were brushes with the weirld outside of " Kennewick ", which means 30 hellls in the native Umatila language. When his older brother Duncan returned from his service in the Army he left behind three platters that would steer and shape young Jeff's curiosities and appreciation of the wonderful things you can put in your ear; Mose Allison, Vince Giraldi, and Andre Segovia. Good start, he still tells himself. Thanks Duncan.
Which came first, the rock or the roll? Burning questions about reggae vs ska and who put the bop in the shimmy and who's gonna clean it up? Is rock n roll gonna kill him and drag him off to hell or can he ever be forgiven for the moonlit debauchery committed in diminished capacities and self inflicted delirium?
Setting these questions aside to consume themselves or someone else, Jeff learned to paint,
music for the eye and stuff. Sculpting with found objects is challenging because we quickly discover
that its possible to have too much junk and too few ideas. Painting on glass, while thinking it his own invention, had been done by f**kers for about one thousand years, seemed to be the real avenue of expression
for his jeffiness. There are appreciative buyers of his original pieces, and there are no copies, knockoffs, or reproductions except for the artist's own bad photo documents of each painting. To negotiate your own painting by Jeffrey Kirk go to his firstname.lastname@example.org or
