Barbara Burzillo - Artist's Statement

My work is inspired by a deep desire to communicate on a spiritual and emotional level. I’m compelled to find ways to share what I am feeling in clay and on canvas, creating visual stories through movement and color.

My work is primarily abstract sculpture and painting. I revel in dramatic gestures, bright palettes and rich textures. My figurative works are frequently elongated, faceless, fantastical beings. My art is often described as moving or emotional. It’s been noted that my sculptures convey a sense of movement. I work very quickly relying on the medium as an active participant in determining the direction of my art. While I sometimes plan, my most successful sculptures and paintings are of organic origins.

In the end, all that really matters is that my art speaks to your soul.
