Drew Burnham: Ultramarine
Saturday, March 9, 2-4 pm – ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE
exhibition dates: March 9 – 23, 2019
Ultramarine is the long-awaited solo exhibition of new works by acclaimed painter Drew Burnham.
Colourful abstract under-paintings form the foundation of this latest series and from this disarray emerges the artist’s distinct aesthetic language. Lush forms, intricate brushstrokes, and sweeping movement embody the stirring vitality of the Canadian wilderness in Burnham’s canvasses.
The burgeoning fervor of the coastal brush as seen in Graham Island, the tidal waters of Goose Bay Cannery, Bella Coola with their vivid patterning, South to Pirates Cove, rich with the dynamic vitality of its windswept trees — these scenes are the mode through which Burnham’s opus delivers a purely visual rapport through the eyes of the beholder.
