SALT pushes the preferred minimalist palette of this artist with ariel views of Mexico, Utah and Australia. Now it becomes an explosive array of colors contained between sinuous lines of rivers, roads and tracks either man-made, Nature made or both. These abstract presentations appear closely akin to the 1950s and 1960’s period of painting history, making the observer question whether they are looking at a painting or a photograph.
VELD focuses on the annual spring growing season in Flevoland, The Netherlands, the largest tulip area in the region. Flying in an open door helicopter at 250-500 feet, Burdeny had to time the shoot precisely to capture the fields at peak bloom.
The artist’s first color abstract landscapes – DRIFT of 2000-2006, a series of moving and still photographic images collected during travels through Canada, France, Japan, England, Belgium and the USA, catalogued the shifting light and color of the world’s oceans and shorelines into horizontal “bands”. 16 years later, Burdeny welcomes the viewer to experience the incredible color abstraction of these ordered fields from afar and then the extreme details of the flower blooms revealed at nose length.
