This event has ended.

Cristin Tierney Gallery presents Young Oaks, a new work by Victor Burgin.

Young Oaks is the latest work from Victor Burgin’s open project Afterlife. It elaborates upon a passing invocation in Afterlife of the work of the Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi, known for his sparse and restrained representations of interiors, people and landscapes. During a visit to the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Burgin was so struck by Hammershøi’s work that he later included an image representing his memory of the experience in Afterlife. Young Oaks, named after Hammershøi’s 1907 painting Young Oak Trees, expands on this by presenting a succession of views of four interconnecting rooms based on the Danish painter’s interiors. Burgin’s installation of six diptychs is completed by a framed text citing a haiku by Richard Wright.
