An Exploration Of Color & Texture
The work of Eugenia A. Burgo cleverly plays with our perception. Her massive magnification of objects captures the eye. The pairing of intense colors with suggestive erotic forms and a play of light and shadow have a seductive effect on the eye of the observer.
Her large oil on canvas paintings are neither subtle nor delicate, but rather loud and powerful. Nevertheless, they possess an intimate quality, evoking tender feelings, for which we leave little room for in our everyday lives. Their compositions awaken the longing for an everyday sensuality that seems to have been lost to us.
