Christopher Burton

2015

Throughout my practice I have focused on creating drawings that immerse the viewer in a deep abstract space, by exploring drawing and using architecture as a starting point. The architectural aspect stems from travelling to Copenhagen and sketching the city from high vantage points. The sketches from Copenhagen translated into highly dense cityscapes that were a form of visual mapping. I have continued to push these drawings into broader space orientated works that build up various areas of depth and weight through tonal shifts.
