① Artwork:

Invisible Crest

This painting has a subtle, prismatic surface that appears to be in a constant state of flux. Like sunlight washing over a landscape, it can appear different in changing light. To create this work, the artist used layers of oil paint, wax and a heavy application of silicone that creates an almost translucent surface. Its mirror-like surface allows viewers to imbue it with their own latent emotions as the painting refracts and even peers back.

Burnell creates romantic works with mirror-like surfaces that the viewer imbues with their own latent emotions—refracting and peering back at once.
