“When Merchant-Ivory asked Bruno to create Picasso-like drawings for their film, Surviving Picasso, little did they guess that they would get Picasso-Plus drawings. And when I visited Bruno’s studio recently and saw his little metal sculptures, little did I guess that I would be looking at several Calder-Plus sculptures. But Bruno is an artist sui generis, and one who deserves an exhibition. I’m delighted that the Hudson Opera House will be giving him one.”

McDaris Fine Art presents 
Forrest Burch: Visionary Landscapes
On Exhibition through April 12, 2015

Hudson, NY – Forrest Burch’s new collection of paintings vivifies the landscape in which this self-taught artist has always lived. Hallmarks of the Hudson River Valley environment – rushing waterfalls and creeks, lush forests, rocky outcroppings, golden skies –  belie the existence of hidden behemoths. Forms emerge from hillsides and amongst clouds, trees converse, boulders slumber together, a forest inhales under the moonlight. Burch’s imagination transforms landscapes into titans whose futures are forever.
