Continuing to conjure up imaginary still lifes of configurations of adored objects, Burke flattens her subject matter for a full display, drawn from a bird’s eye view. Through imagining emptying her pockets onto a table and sorting through the contents, or witnessing inanimate objects caught off guard, she invites the viewer to be a bystander seeing into a surreal, romantic world. This series, Table Arrangements, draws inspiration from post-impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard whose later works transform mundane scenes into fantastical arrangements.
