bountiful little dudes

In response to an exhibition of bountiful little dudes arts writer Carrie Schneider wrote, "Burr creates scenes of blissful domestic life -- children congregating around the home stereo system, mothers and daughters working and observing in the kitchen -- and turns them on their heads by sprinkling in images from bodybuilding and porno mags. The tanned, greased, hairless torsos and limbs contrast the innocent fireplaces, refrigerators and bundt cakes. The collages are then coated with gloss medium and outlined in neon puff paint -- creating an overall sense of tainted nostalgia, of loss for the best." See part of the collection here.
