The Obscured Landscape Exhibition by Christopher Burk
My newest exhibition, The Obscured Landscape, plays upon the imagery of the “obscured” that occurs within the urban landscape. The exhibition continues my interest in the nocturne, with carefully composed pieces that focus on the camouflage that occurs within the exterior environments. The featured obstructions have at times been intentionally created by the hand of man, while at other moments, they have been created by nature. The level of obstruction ranges from a slight hindrance to complete obliteration - a short privacy fence separates one home from the next while towering foliage creates a complete barrier to a barren parking lot. While elements of human activity exist, such as a light shining from a window or a trash can on the corner, the paintings absolve themselves from actually depicting people. Instead, the work records and reflects upon the transformation of the urban environment by people through their action with or against the natural environment.
