Stuart Burton. Mirror of Myth

Using bold colors and dynamic forms, American artist Stuart Burton’s most recent works translate the narrative texts of the Jewish Bible into a timeless visual experience that resonates with all viewers. “The goal isn’t really to find set answers, but rather to delve deeper into the subject in order to find new questions that push past boundaries,” the artist explains. Burton has always been inspired by a lifelong curiosity about how people interweave the myths and realities of the world around them into their lives. He uses his keen aesthetic sense, bravura brushworks and impressive creativity to re-tell the stories and beliefs that are such strong parts of our history, help define our present and continue to inform our future. As his paintings in this exhibit demonstrate, Burton’s abstract works translate color and composition into a narrative wherein he reinvents legends and fables into vivaciously contemporary paintings which speak universal truths.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Stuart Burton still lives and works in New York. A student of Ad Reinhardt, he has exhibited work throughout the city.
