Modernist House Paintings: Andy Burgess is now available!

Nazraeli Press is proud to announce the publication of Modernist House Paintings: Andy Burgess. Representing over ten years of work by contemporary painter Andy Burgess, this exquisite monograph highlights the artist’s significant paintings in oil and acrylic completed since his move to the American Southwest from his native London in 2009. Printed on luscious warm-toned paper with 61 plates of exceptionally high-quality color reproductions, this crisp, clean book sequences an impressive body of work, curated like a mid-career retrospective. Representing an extensive exploration of modernist and mid-century homes, such as The Stahl House and The Kaufmann House, these colorful and abstracted works allow Burgess to reinterpret iconic residences with a heightened, dreamlike intensity. A foreword by gallerist Cynthia Corbett and a comprehensive essay by Tucson Museum of Art curator Julie Sasse, Ph.D. complement the artist’s images and lend insight and perspective into his creative process.

Mid-Century Perspectives is a temporary exhibition at the Tucson Museum of Art focused on the paintings of Andy Burgess. The vibrant light of the American Southwest along with the modern architecture in the region has had a noticeable impact on the subjects and color palette of Burgess’s paintings. The painter had an international reputation when he moved from London to Tucson in 2009. “His work has become a sustained meditation on the relationship between architecture and art,” say Julie Sasse, Chief Curator of the Tucson Museum of Art. The opening coincides with the TMA’s free first Thursday program.
