George Burr, Ephraim, Wisconsin Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement “I measure my life not by the number of breaths that I take, but by the number of times my artwork takes your breath away.”
George Burr resurrected his high school art studies when he visited Door County at the age of 51. Picking up his pastels he discovered a talent within that had quietly matured over the years. Concentrating on pastel landscapes George’s brilliant use of color and texture captures and extends the vistas that surround us. The soft pastel pigment portrays nature with a soft beauty unique to the medium.
George works with archival soft pastels including Shmincke, Rembrandt, NuPastels, and Faber-Castell Polychromos. He works exclusively on acid free sanded papers such as Wallis and Sennelier La Carte Board. Often using his fingers to blend he combines a realistic approach with expressive colors to create breathtaking landscapes. Original Images vary in size from 5 X 7 to 24 X 36.
The George Burr Gallery is located in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. The address is 10325 Highway 42, Ephraim, WI.
