After a successful 23 years on Wall Street, Kurt Giehl left his financial career behind to pursue his passion for art full time. An avid fisherman, his seascape paintings explore the subtleness of the horizon; especially locations where land meets the water.

Working in The Hamptons, Giehl's Sea & Landscape Series are inspired by the physical beauty of the Hamptons and mingle the landscape with the emotive to portray a state of mind, the feeling of the atmosphere and the aura of location. Many are inspired from vistas discovered while fishing in Hamptons and North Fork waters.

In his solo show, Giehl will also exhibit bold abstract paintings that present balanced compositions of rhythmic forms. Differing from his seascapes—that create a serene sense of calm—Giehl’s abstract paintings are energetic. Making use of a strong sense of geometry, his paintings channel movement and vitality while still referencing places where land and sea intersect.
