Christopher Burk

This is from a striking series or painting by the Columbus, Ohio based artist Christopher Burk. Christopher focuses his work on highly detailed paintings of houses and streetscapes in his area. The power of this series is that the viewer already knows what this means without any detailed explanation. This is the new view of a midwestern house in this era of climate change. The minimalist style makes it more haunting. The lesson I would take from this image and series is that less is more when telling a story. The more you are explaining, the less useful your concept or product is to people.
