James Burnett abstract painting on paper Wilbur Flats 12

Description: In this work from 2004, James Burnett adds to his long-running "Lost Cities" series of paintings whose subject is idealized places--civilizations of the mind. Over time, this series has included tiny gouaches and large oils, all with abstracted landscape structure. This "Wilbur Flats" work ispainted with a brush as broad as a housepainter's with a few confident strokes that place Burnett firmly in the camp of the gestural abstract painters. View detail. With simplicity and conviction, Burnett distills painting to its vital essence. (When asked how long it took him to paint such a work, Burnett replies: "70 years".)

"Wilbur Flats #12" is painted in gouache and watercolor on heavy Arches aquarelle paper with a beautiful irregular edge that makes it suitable for float-mounting. This piece forms a handsome pair with a related painting Wilbur Flats #11. View as pair Read more about the background of this abstract painter in James Burnett studio visit.
