Monte Burman lives and works in Hamilton, ON and his studio practice includes painting and sculpture. There is no evolving interest in either his paintings or sculpture; narrative, pictorial illusion and material sensibility are explored in pictures and assembled objects and then promptly abandoned for something unfamiliar again. When viewed together, his paintings and sculpture exhibit only a kind of wonder for things. Monte is a recent graduate of the University of Guelph’s Studio Art program. His latest group shows include: “The Object Interrupted” (OCAD, Toronto), “Untitled” (Renann Isaacs Contemporary Art, Guelph), “Young Painters of Great Promise” (Studio 21, Halifax) and “Rapture/Rupture” (Hallwalls, Buffalo).
