Biography / Artist statement
James Burke (b. 1983) is a London-based visual artist. Six years of fine art training culminated in a Masters degree at UAL Central Saint Martins in 2007.
James Burke’s practice challenges current notions of colour and process, pattern and geometry, materiality and form, whilst drawing on principles from Formalism, Hard Edge & Minimalism, to the Bauhaus, Design Art & Relational Aesthetics.
The circular geometry used by the artist seeps into cultures, with subtle differences & a broad range of applications. The geometry has been seen and experienced inside churches, cathedrals, mosques, synagogues, roman villas, ancient ruins, shopping malls, haute couture, books and museums. The artist extracts this geometric form and applies it through a postmodern working methodology.
Design principles and psychological narratives are explored through the lenses of both nature and the machine. ‘The act of using circular forms, creates a bridge between geometry as the machinery of reality, and the ergonomics of organic matter.’ J Burke, Financial Times Magazine, 2007.
