DARNESTOWN, Md., Dec.1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Miami Art Week is
considered the ultimate for contemporary artists, galleries, collectors and
emerging talent. In an unconventional move, Burke Wilford, self-taught
painter is exhibiting an ambitious show with over 50 paintings. Wilford’s
paintings are reminiscent of the original masters of Abstract
Expressionism. Burke Wilford draws inspiration and his vibrant approach
from the early classic roots of the American Abstract movement. Wil-
ford’s exhibit is open to the public and is showing at the Loews Miami
Beach Hotel, Dec. 6-10 during Miami Art Basel 2017.
About the Artist
Wilford lives and paints in the Potomac area of Maryland, which is on the outskirts of Washington,
D.C. Wilford’s work spans the breadth of emotion from calm and harmonious to vibrant waves of color and form. “I strive to combine the colors in such a way to evoke a feeling of serenity and
inspiration,” Wilford explains. Wilford credits his inspiration to the early works of Abstract Expressionism founders – Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. He draws from their iconic images and expansive fields of color to create his own unique and compelling style. A number of Wilford’s paintings feature silhouettes of rock formations from the American Southwest, creating a visual “handle” for each viewer to access his or her own inner landscape. Like other Abstract painters, Wilford’s dynamic shapes engage the imagination simultaneously with a microcosmic and macrocosm view.
