In the Studio: "Ordinary Lives--An Allegory"   48" x 144", 2008

"Birmelin's paintings are brilliant in the way they confront us with a variety of urban spaces and surfaces, including human surfaces. His is a toughminded realism--these are not a tourist's pictures. They flatter no one, and are full of psychological as well as material detail."
--Donald Kuspit, Artforum
