James Burnett abstract painting on paper Wilbur Flats 23

Description: In this calligraphic painting in black and red from 2005, 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. "Wilbur Flats 23" is painted 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 large image. With simplicity and conviction, Burnett melds Chinese and American traditions and distills painting to its vital essence.

"Wilbur Flats #23" is painted in gouache and watercolor on paper. This bold piece can certainly stand alone, but it also forms a nice pair (or trio) with the related paintings Wilbur Flats #21 (gold and black) and Wilbur Flats #22 (black and blue) providing ample space is available to properly display such strongly graphic images.
