Trevor BurgessArtist, Curator, Project manager, Consultant, Fundraiser
Concepts: For several years I have been making paintings inspired by people's everyday lives in the urban space of cities. The paintings generally arise out of my own visual experience of places and people. I have been interested in the shops, markets and street life around me in London, and recently I have also been making paintings of markets in South American cities, drawing on experience from many years of travelling in South America. I have also curated an exhibition IN THE CITY bringing together painters whose work reflects their experience of cities across four continents. Another strand of work has been a series of paintings of homes in London entitled A Place to Live, inspired by Estate Agent property adverts. I am also currently working on a private commission for a triptych painting of Granary Square, King's Cross, London, which is generating a series of studies and related drawings and paintings.
