Anthony Burrill: In a New Place
A break from the norm for Anthony Burrill in his latest London show, In a New Place
Designer and illustrator Anthony Burrill takes mixed-media techniques as a point of departure from his stylistic two-dimensional print-based work for London show In a New Place. The show represents an investigation of industrial processes with digital prints and large laser-cut Perspex pieces, focusing on forces of nature, from rainbows to thunderstorms, applied with Burrill’s simple geometric treatment.
The leading image is reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s famous album cover for Dark Side of the Moon, with spectrum colours and primitive shapes emboldened against a black background. Burrill’s simple graphic style with clean-lines and primary colours has appeal to Japanese markets and the subversive slogans and bold shapes belie a commercial leaning; playing on ideas of advertising and its visual pervasiveness.
