"Winter" and "Summer", 2019

This piece is meant to flow with the endless movement and energy through the building, holding a place in the speed of those passing while providing points of focus in the chaos, all while nodding to the endless layers of new and exciting contemporary colors, patterns, and textures of the fashion world.

"Spring" and "Autumn", 2019

This piece is the largest paintings that Burwell has ever created. The paintings reflect the colors of the seasons, with warm reds and yellows associated with trees and foliage of autumn, and cool greens and yellows associated with spring. There is a sense of activity and movement throughout both paintings, and the layered, meandering lines reflect the active movement of life in center city.
