“Burts presents an antithetical approach to the usually flattering intentions of portraiture.”
—From Honfleur Gallery’s siteregarding the series ‘Neglected Weed’
Every time I see this artist's work, it makes me swear to myself under my breath. I mean this in the best possible way.
How does he do that?
How does it look like that?
Wait, what is that even drawn with?
Most often, the answer to the last question is a ball point pen. Wh-what??
All the work I've seen of his is figurative and full of life and/or motion with distortion employed frequently, purposefully, and expertly. Go look!
