Artist Spotlight: Nate Burbeck

Paintings of suburban scenes by artist Nate Burbeck (previously featured here). Part of Burbeck’s upcoming show with photographer Kent Andreasen, “Not Far From Here,” challenges traditionally idyllic depictions of the American midwest with images that, unlike the iconic work of 20th century painters like Norman Rockwell or Grant Wood, capture a far more unsettled and unsettling landscape:

“Art does not stand apart from the world around it, but rather reflects and amplifies it. In today’s social and political setting, we see a reflection of perspective in Andreasen and Burbeck’s works. An uncertainty about who we are and where we fit in the ever-changing world is not unique to any one place or person, it is universal. We sit, viewing a world not far from here, familiar, yet somehow just beyond our grasp.”

See more of Burbeck’s paintings below or on display at McKibbin lofts in Bushwick (255 McKibbin St, Brooklyn, NY) from September 20 – October 20.
