Burke, Marie Kirk

Marie Kirk Burke‘s study of objects and personal effects is both figurative and intimate. Her studies are a pictorial and conceptual experience. The work has a nostalgic realism that moves towards a contemporary impression, capturing a simple image and the sentimental impact of it’s commonality. Marie is an artist that presents the viewer with pleasure and insight into the wider world by focusing on a small aspect of it. She works from life in her studio in Chicago, staging each painting to tell a story.

Marie received a B.F.A. from Boston College, studied at the Decordava Museum School in Lincoln Ma. and earned a certificate in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
