Oil pastel and colored pencil on paper | 2020
Burke explores soft, warm palettes alongside subtly psychedelic and surreal still-life scenes that transport the viewer into the vague memories of her mind. Her drawings are intricate and heavy handed explorations of objects that the artist can represent, but not tangibly make. Each flower has a kindred living nearby, and each vase could be traced back to someone’s home, but to whom escapes the artist. The lingering senses of an experience come alive and possibly pull from other memories. Thick swatches of colored pencil reference ink drawdowns, and someone else’s paint pallet, but the conglomeration of the hues suspended in imaginary space do more to remind you of an era, than to point to a specific painting. Each drawing is built, and built upon, in a circular fashion, begging the viewer to suspend orientation. They’re still lives that simply couldn't exist, but they make you feel like they should.

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
