"I am attempting to force the viewer to see the traditional subject for what it can be. Flowers are strong and resilient. Nature is to be watched closely for the small changes that should instruct our lives. The humanity of the act of painting can be a mirror not only for the painter, but for what and how the viewer sees.” -Bobbie Burgers
Bobbie Burgers is interested in the process of decay, transformation, and metamorphosis. With a distinct style that merges abstraction with representation in increasing degrees, her work brings together instinctive compositions while revealing her precise powers of observation. Remarkable for their compositional rhythms, bold coloration, and sweeping gestural brushstrokes, Burgers’ paintings bring alive the fundamental quest to express something personal, subjective and emotive, in a poetic, abstract way.
