Nazraeli Press is proud to announce the publication of
Modernist House Paintings: Andy Burgess.
Representing over ten years of work by contemporary painter Andy Burgess, this exquisite monograph highlights the artist’s significant paintings in oil andacrylic completed since his move to the American Southwest from his native London in 2009. Printed on luscious warm-toned paper with 61 plates of exceptionally high-quality color reproductions, this crisp, clean book sequences an impressive body of work, curated like a mid-career retrospective. Representing an
extensive exploration of modernist and mid-century homes, such as The Stahl House and The Kaufmann House, these colorful and abstracted works allow Burgess to reinterpret iconic residences with a heightened, dreamlike intensity. A foreword by gallerist Cynthia Corbett, Director of The Cynthia Corbett Gallery in London and Founder and Director of the Young
Masters Art Prize, and a comprehensive essay by Julie Sasse, Ph.D., Chief Curator and Curator of Modern, Contemporary and Latin American Art at the Tucso Museum of Art complement the artist’s images and lend insight and perspective into his creative process.

About the Artist
London-born artist Andy Burgess is known for his renditions of modernist and mid-century
architecture, panoramic cityscape paintings, and elaborate mosaic-like collages created from his
collection of vintage papers and ephemera. Burgess’s move from London to Tucson in 2009 led him to explore new directions in his paintings, which have become saturated with vibrant color and the dramatic light of the American Southwest. Represented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery in London, as well as galleries in San Francisco, Laguna Beach, Scottsdale, New York and by Etherton Gallery in Tucson, Burgess’s work can be seen at many prestigious international art fairs, including Art Miami, Art Hamptons, The London Art Fair, Art Central in Hong Kong, and Art New York. In January 2012, Burgess had his first museum show, Paper City, at The University of Arizona Museum of Art and has subsequently exhibited at The Laguna Art Museum in California. The Tucson Museum of Art exhibition Mid-century Perspectives presenting Burgess’s large-scale modernist house paintings is currently on view and continues through April 2018.
About the paintings
Andy Burgess’s paintings are a meditation on the relationship between painting and architecture and also the formal qualities of painting as a medium that, in essence, is about light and color and space. His most recent acrylic on canvas paintings continue to explore these themes, with a further shift away from a photo-realist representation of modernist and mid-century architecture towards a more geometric abstraction. Representing years of extensive research and investigation of modernist and mid-century homes, these colorful and abstracted paintings by Burgess are reinterpretations of iconic works of architecture through the personal vision of the artist, with a heightened, dream-like intensity and the saturated color of the Southwest.
