Gary Burnley: The Known World

September 2, 2021 - October 2, 2021

A photo collage, wherein the painted eyes and forehead of an individual are superimposed over a dated photograph of a boy wearing a collared shirt and tie, against a dreamy landscape background.

Blue Sky is pleased to announce the 2020 Critical Mass Solo Exhibition, “The Known World” by Gary Burnley. In his series of unique photo-collages, Burnley constructs images that layer our memory with revered representations of beauty, power, influence, identity and social status into unlikely, chance encounters with other images. Burnley’s intention is to craft alternative parables that invade and challenge the immortality and purity of long-held Western cultural profiles, ideals, and attitudes.
