Preview: Joshua Burbank’s “Sacred Geometry: Faith, Trust and Angel Dust”

Based in the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, Joshua Burbank creates autumn-hued works that explore the idea of modern womanhood. Burbank is opening a solo show titled "Sacred Geometry: Faith, Trust and Angel Dust" at The Outsiders Newcastle on June 21. Burbank begins his creative process with collage, crafting his baroque imagery using bits and pieces of high-end magazines. He then converts these images into oil paintings, coalescing abstract marks into detailed portraits of women draped in rich fabrics and languishing in ornate interiors. Take a look at a preview of Burbank's new work after the jump and see the show June 21 through July 20.
