Urban Expositions has announced there will be 60 galleries, 300 artists from 11 countries and 33 cities represented at the Palm Springs Fine Arts Fair February 11-14, 2016. One of the returning galleries is the Cynthia Corbett Gallery of London known for contemporary art and features emerging artists and new established artist from throughout the world.
The gallery will, again, be featuring Andy Burgess, who has become one of Palm Springs favorites. His subject matter captures the essence of the buildings often featured during Modernism Week.
He chooses buildings with clean lines, geometric shapes and strong architectural forms then minimizes the details. Then he uses primary colors to create his art. This use of color differentiates him from other minimalist artists.
From his biography on Cynthia Corbett Gallery website:
Burgess has titled his new series of work “The Painted Cube”. Burgess has embarked upon a project that he anticipates will occupy him for several years, exploring the depth of the genesis of modern architecture in Europe and the US and its relationship to modern art, avant-garde design and abstract painting in particular.
Every indication is that he will continue to use buildings found in Palm Springs as his source of inspiration. From past experiences, his work has been one of the fair goers’ favorites at the Palm Springs Art Fair. Collectors of his art are anxiously waiting to see his latest creations so they can add to their collections.
Andy Burgess will be at Opening Night, Friday and Saturday. Thus, you have an opportunity to meet this artist and ask him about his work.
