An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until June 5, 2022
Fleshy pinks, candy reds, and iridescent green fat shimmer in these monumental ink drawings. Burke’s work often explores the intersection between man-made and natural worlds. The specific inspiration for Meat Candy comes from a personal examination of our meat consumption and production. Like a contemporary twist on a cubist still-life, Burke abstracts and repeats his subject with masterful design that results in graceful, dynamic compositions. These powerful paintings are ironically both appealingly beautiful and grotesque.
