“Workshop”


Tom Burckhardt’s work is a carnival of images jumbled and jostling each other in precarious nonsensical compositions. He uses lushly colored and patterned images from all kinds of sources that bounce between abstraction and representation. Images come from tool catalogs, paper and fabric patterns, funhouse painting, architectural details, stripes, dots and squiggles. “Workshop” is an ambitious color lithograph and linocut with chine collé printed in twelve colors from nine plates and one linocut. It has been printed in an edition of 25, plus proofs, on white Rives BFK paper 16 x 36” with chine collé of various papers. (No, it’s not upside down)
