Paul Behnke visits the studio of painter Tom Burckhardt.
Behnke writes: "Burckhardt's work blurs the lines between painting and sculpture, the Modern and the Conceptual…. [his] work often deals with traditional stereotypes of artists viewed through an individually conceptual filter. He describes his personality as a wedge between the motivating force of doubt (think de Kooning or Guston) and the absurdity of placing oneself in that position. But let's not forget that these are striking paintings as well even without Burckhardt's keen, direct and conceptual observations."
