Joseph Burchfield
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus

Media:Painting; Drawing;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Both painting and the objective world act together in my work by using drawing and color. A painting has these simultaneous aspects of awareness, feeling, and subjectivity that create a unity of experience for the viewer. Drawing and color are conceptions that transfer observations into a meaningful viewpoint or a unified feature of sensation. Drawing and color are independent qualities but when combined together they produce internal feelings about the external world. Creating a record of interpreting these objective physical sensations in a painting provides me with the improvisational choices needed to drive innovation and change. This action lets invention be in the service of composition, forming a relation between drawing, color and observation. A sketch any time is dandy and fine. A drawing is great with color and paint. And stories are best for dreaming the rest. For me it's No Doodles or Dribbles. No Scrawls or Scribbles. It's where you draw the line.
