"Art operates in an ongoing continuum that has its own moral, social and temporal imperatives."
Nowhere is this truer than in the work of Gerard M Burns. His new canvases consist of a series of human dramas that allow him to work on a truly epic scale. His faultless figurative technique, which is marked by a feeling for volume and space rather than line or pattern, invests the human form with all the solemnity required to picture extraordinary events.
It is a manner originally derived from the old masters. Burns exploits it to give mythical and religious subjects new meaning and relevance. Eternal dilemmas set against the harsh realities of the modern urban wilderness elevate these scenes beyond temporal boundaries.
