Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings. Her work has been described as "minimalist abstract landscape." Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.
