Pop Geometry refers to Burgess’s love of Pop Art and the incorporation of found vintage ephemera into his collage, much of it referencing a golden age of American graphic design and advertising. The geometric elements, and the use of text and typeface also reference early Twentieth century modern movements such as Supermatism and Constructivsm, and a time of extrodrinary creativity in Russian and European art. By combining geometric form with American graphics, Burgess constructs a playfull meeting of two distinct artistic cultures, East and West, old and new.
I discovered him first because of his amazing Collages. My favorites are the cities! Born in London and living in Arizona, Burgess travels the world for inspiration.
But then I realized that he is also very good at painting! He is very versatile, going from the abstract to the very detailed painting. Look at these cars!!
