BARBARA BURZILLO

 

After concluding a lengthy corporate career I decided to pursue my passion for art. I am inspired by a deep desire to communicate on a spiritual and emotional level. I feel compelled to find ways to share that feeling in clay and on canvas, creating visual stories through movement and color.

My work is primarily abstract sculpture and painting. I revel in dramatic gestures, bright palettes and rich textures. My figurative works are frequently elongated, faceless, fantastical beings and are often described as exhibiting strong emotion and passion. I rely on the medium as an active participant in determining the direction of my art. While I sometimes plan, I believe my most successful sculptures and paintings are of organic origins.
