Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Wend, a selection of new artworks by multimedia artist Mick Burson. Made while traveling, Wend serves as a visual record of Burson’s nomadic life style.
Wend consists of sculptures, drawings, paintings, and photographs created in many countries and states over the past six months using materials and inspirations that the artist found along the way. Burson created where he could when he could in response to each place. In the artists’s words, “The work reflects the performance of moving, unpacking and re-packing, finding familiars as an act of grounding, and a continued life-long performance of wandering around while appearing to have a destination.”
The exhibition will also include a station with everything necessary to write a letter—a place to sit, a stack of stamped envelopes, paper, writing utensils, and an outgoing mailbox that the artist will make.
Mick Burson has created public art murals all over the world, including a commissioned piece on the back exterior wall of the Richard Levy Gallery. He recently completed the largest mural in New Mexico to date on the exterior of Keshet Dance Center. Burson’s work is in the permanent collections of the Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection, the Navasota, TX Public Library, and the University of New Mexico. Originally from Waco, TX, Burson received his MFA in studio art from the University of New Mexico earlier this year.
Reception: November 1, 6–8 pm
