The studio itself sums up this retrospective showcase: "Figurative painter Brian Burke was one of the most extraordinary artists to have come out of PEI. He was a genius at capturing psychological states of being through minimal means. Studio 21 Director Deborah Carver recently visited Burke’s home in Murray Harbour PEI to select works for this exhibition. They represent a number of series made by the artist from 2003 to 2014. As with all his paintings, the large spaces of canvas are gloriously but subtly animated with evidence of Burke’s brush and hand."
