This event has ended.

The Mitchell Algus Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings, sculpture and drawings by Dan Burkhart.

Dan Burkhart’s oeuvre, produced over five decades and still developing, is, perhaps, the greatest hidden trove of contemporary art in America. Ranging from complex visionary compositions to disquieting corporeal abstractions, Burkhart’s paintings, sculptures and drawings are strange, exquisite objects, many taking form over years through extreme experimentation with medium, technique and effect.

After completing his MFA at the University of Colorado, Burkhart moved to Los Angeles where he showed with the Rosamund Felsen Gallery. Here he garnered significant press and work entered numerous LA collections. Moving to New York in the mid-1980s Burkhart’s independence and rigor confounded art world context. His art, steeped in the Anti-Transcendentalist literary tradition of American dark romanticism stands in line with that of historical painters like Elihu Vedder, Albert Pinkham Ryder, Ivan Le Lorraine Albright and Edwin Dickinson. Today, Burkhart’s work holds a carnival mirror to independent contemporary artists like Glenn Brown, David Altmejd and Danica Lundy.

Dan Burkhart was born in Fargo, North Dakota in 1952 and received his MFA from the University of Colorado. He has had solo shows with the Rosamund Felsen Gallery in Los Angeles (1981, 1984) and with this gallery in New York (1993, 1994, 2016, 2018). The artist has appeared in group shows at the Gering & Lopez Gallery (2008), Algus Greenspon (2011), The Box LA (2014) and High Art, Paris (2017). Dan Burkhart has lived in Colorado, Los Angeles, New York and Albuquerque, New Mexico. The artist currently lives and works in Moravia, New York.
