Deborah Burke

Calgary, AB

We live in a diverse, magical world of colour filled with movement, shapes, and life which occur in a billion fascinating forms. As a child, this magic and colour fascinated Deborah Burke and would cause her to stop in her racks to simply be in whatever space she was in and breathe in the colours or to watch a bird in flight. She was mesmerized and entranced. She could sit for hours just watching, just being. As an artist, Deborah endeavours to capture some of these amazing energies in paint. Her favoured mediums are acrylic paint and clay.

Deborah’s work is largely abstraction because it allows the viewer to have their own experience of the colours, the magic, and life itself. The absence of created form allows for an individual experience where movement itself is a result of the eye encompassing the whole, with the colours themselves luring one into a different space, challenging one to create new personal associations and possibly even to question the stability of our own created reality. The textures that are applied to the canvas allow the experience to become more tactile, thereby enhancing the involvement of the viewer on multiple levels at once.

Nothing in life is permanent. Everything is ephemeral, and only lasts for a period of time. It is this very truth that allows the artist to continually create, to continually honour the impermanent, and to continually honour the beauty of life itself.
