Bobbie Burgers uses painting as an opportunity to move between the imaginary and the represented. Her expressive and gestural brushstrokes are intrinsic to her practice and highlight the emotional power of her paintings.
Bobbie Burgers is interested in the process of decay, transformation, and metamorphosis in nature. 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.
