Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, presents Dustin Burgert: Boxcar, plus don’t miss the Annual Birdhouse Auction with Drury University benefiting Habitat for Humanity!
Show statement: “Inspiration drawn from railroad car graffiti is the foundation for my show, “Boxcar.” I’ve never minded being stopped by a train that was loaded down with Graffiti art—seeing the different colors, techniques and styles zooming by. Each car different but similar bounded by the capacity of technique you get with spray paint. I challenged myself to come up with pieces that not only reflected graffiti but pieces that ease the mind with the use of the cool colors and relaxed shapes. You won’t find spray paint in this collection, but hopefully you will catch the essence of that old train car clinking by.”
Artist Bio: “My relationship with abstract art is derived from a creative ability to see a finished product in my head before paint touches canvas. The visions I put to canvas are spontaneous and often don’t fall into a defined theme, although they may have a slight likeness that can be observed in them. Because art can mean or represent so many different things to so many different people, my goal above anything is to create conversational pieces that not only warm a room but inspire positivity and imagination as well.” – Dustin Burgert (417) 616-6488 www.obeliskhome.com
