What's behind the landscape
and seascape paintings of John Burk?

Places.  These are places I enjoy.  They may include dramatic forms or color dynamics, vast spaces or interesting textures.  One way or another, these places have caught my eye.  I capture them with realism and interpretation, mixing detail and textures with broad color fields and impressionistic suggestion, and powerfully designed composition.  My objective is to create in an elegant and painterly fashion allusions of sound, touch and smell, senses that can only be hinted at with color on canvas.  When a painting really works, you find yourself in these places so thoroughly that you smell the spice in the air, feel the warmth of the sun, hear the rustle of grass or riffling waters.
