A new voice of Abstract Expressionism, Burke Wilford presents largest first time solo event during Miami Art Week, Dec. 6-10 at Loews Miami Beach
DARNESTOWN, MD, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first week of December in Miami is an International Modern Art extravaganza with dozens of art shows, hundreds of artists, remarkable parties and scores of the rich and famous. One emerging artist, Burke Wilford is presenting a tribute to the Classic Abstract Masters during Miami Art Week. With over 50 abstract paintings, Wilford’s solo exhibit may be the largest for a first-time contributor to the Miami Art event. Free to the public, Wilford’s paintings may be viewed at the Lowe’s Miami Beach Hotel, Dec. 6-10 from 9a.m.to 8 p.m.
Wilford credits his inspiration to the early works of Abstract Expressionism founders – Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. He draws from their iconic images and expansive fields of color to create his own unique and compelling style.
A number of Wilford’s paintings feature silhouettes of rock formations from the American Southwest, creating a visual “handle” for each viewer to access his or her own inner landscape. Wilford’s dynamic shapes engage the imagination simultaneously with a microcosmic and macrocosm view.
Wilford lives and paints in the Potomac area of Maryland, which is on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. Wilford’s work spans the breadth of emotion from calm and harmonious to vibrant waves of color and form. “I strive to combine the colors in such a way to evoke a feeling of serenity and inspiration,” Wilford explains.
