Artist Statement

 

David Burdeny’s photographs breathe; and they remind us to breathe as well. These temporal studies of human-made and nature-made structures sharing space together in a unique habitat — on or about the water — have the power to invite our single-mindedness elsewhere. Usually square in format, the photographs most often bring our initial gaze to the centre of the composition, but not to a floating point around which compositional elements sit in quiet equilibrium; rather, to a particular detail. Compositionally, Burdeny’s works discard the simple distinction between figure and ground because quality of light and attention to the periphery play an integral role in this balance. His acute architectural sensibility evokes the lived space that surrounds and comprises structures within their context rather than the simple reduction of meaning to figurative forms and their internal coherence.
