The art work of Kirby Sattler is fueled by an inherent interest in the Indigenous Peoples of the Earth. Kirby Sattler
Native American art portraits evolve from the history, ceremony, mythology,
and spirituality of the Plains Indian. Sattler's ultra-detailed interpretations examine the inseparable
relationship between the Native American Indian and his natural world, reflecting a culture that
had no hard line between the sacred and the mundane.
Kirby Sattler has developed his painting into a distinctive style of realism. The methodology involves
the painstaking layering of transparent washes over multiple under-paintings. This technique
results in canvases that are rich in detail, defined textures and surfaces.
With the deliberate precision given to each art work, he produces only a few paintings each year.
