About Megan Burke
 

Color is the keyboard of my expression, of organizing space. An agent that holds my ideas together.

My painting process is intuitive. I bring freedom to my art in order to reach and express my vision. I use my fingers to manipulate the colors into forms, a representation of what is within.

I have a passion for realism and abstraction. One folds into the other. As an example; my Life Cycle series has a sense of variation in its stages yet remains linked thematically. Dawn of Creation's colors represent heat that is involved in growth taking form.

It is my connection to humanity and to the spirit of life that I hope impacts the viewer.
