For Tom Burckhardt (b. 1964) the idea of absurdity has been a compelling point of departure which has led him to push and question the very integrity of a painting as an object. Burckhardt’s abstraction are amalgamations of dissociative forms, colours or patterns forced into a given matrix and left to co-exist in this tenuous community of various visual vocabularies. The artist has been the recipient of many notable grants and awards including a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, Guggenheim Foundation Grant, two Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grants as well as the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation Award from the Academy of Arts and Letters to name just a few.
