  • 16. Interview with Daniel Burke
    What is art to you?
    “Art is observation. Usually there is a visual stimulation of some sort that generates an intrigue; beckons an investigation.”
    “Art is search. The study of observations. This is something that is done concretely; it is the hours upon endless hours of photographing, drawing, making, and painting particular things and object. Instead of thinking about them I get to know them thru art”
    “Art is focus, what the piece is about.”
    “Art is assembling. Once I have enough stuff, I begin to organize.”
    “Art is display. I use scaled models, photos and diagrams to plan the various arrangements to fit into specific sites.”

    “Lucy in the sky with diamonds is a Beatle song”
    Where did your inspiration come from?
    “I don’t believe in inspiration.” “I am a studio person and in the studio there is always something to be done. Therefore I am working on five to six different pieces at one time and I let the pieces talk to each other which helps me to finish them.” “I create the artwork for it’s needs not my own.”
