inspirited philosophy


Anthony Burrill's direct approach to visual communication takes a new turn in his latest show at Kemistry Gallery London. Moving away from traditional type-based printing, the graphic artist has expanded his repertoire to include industrial processes - laser-cut Perspex works - and digital prints. 

Picking a fitting title for the exhibition given his new direction - 'In a New Place' - Burrill has also chosen a new subject, namely the natural world in its many forms. Still geometric and bold as ever just with fewer words, the rainbows, thunderstorms, rain clouds and sunshine speak of a more systemised world - a new graphic identity for a landscape increasingly at the mercy of mankind and its footprints.
Together with the editioned digital prints, Burrill's large scale, one-off Perspex and mirrored works explore shapes and colours, experimenting with the laser-cut techniques and process of layering. Imposing, mesmerising and poetic, they have a kaleidoscopic quality and simplicity to them that belies their technical precision.

As with previous exhibitions, Burrill took the time to photograph the installation of his pieces specially for wallpaper.com
