Martha Burkert

I paint in Maine, and the landscape and architecture that surrounds me continue to be my favorite jumping off points.  I push and pull color around these forms trying to find combinations that feel right.  I am not restrained by local color or the hard/fast rules of perspective.  The application of paint, the resonance of colors against each other, the muscularity of shapes and the temperature of light and dark are my guides.  See Martha’s work on occasion at The Clown, Belfast, Maine.
