About the Artist Burke Wilford

Burke Wilford is a self-taught artist whose work is redolent of Clyfford Still in abstraction and brushwork, often including small representational details evoking the expansive landscapes of the American Southwest.

Wilford’s bold and atmospheric palette summons the full range of human emotions, especially in his diptych and triptych compositions and larger canvases, eliciting thoughtful contemplation. Wilford’s dynamic shapes engage the imagination simultaneously with a microcosmic and macrocosm view.

Reflections

Burke Wilford is an outsider of the traditional art world, but his work suggests that the next generation of Abstract Expressionists have arrived.

“I strive to combine the combination of colors in a painting as to evoke a feeling of
serenity and inspiration…” Burke Wilford

The composition and tension created by the layers of images in Wilford’s work, takes the imagination on a journey from the whisper of intimacy to feeling the winds drifting over alien worlds.
