The Likeness of Being: Portraits by Philip Burke

Philip Burke has been capturing the imaginations of musical divas, film and sports enthusiasts, politicos and the general public through his paintings for over three decades. His unique style—part caricature, part abstract expression—utilizes vibrant colors, sparing brushstrokes and sharp lines to set his work apart from that of all other contemporary artists.

The largest exhibition of Philip Burke’s career graced the vast Burchfield Penney Art Center in 2015, a “curated assembly of his rogues and righteous, royalty and rock, players and politicians” per Burchfield Penney Art Center executive director Anthony Bannon. “Within his images are the reads of character and culture, held to acclaim by a roll call of publishing royalty—Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Vogue, The New Yorker, Village Voice, New York Observer. Burke’s Source Paintings are quietly put back into reproduction in this record of The Likeness of Being.” An exquisite oversized compendium of the brilliant visages by a brilliant artist who was born in Tonawanda and now lives in Buffalo, NY.
