Peter Burns’ paintings address the lost soul, the lone wayfarer, and the anti-hero. The solitary struggle to comprehend the world that looms over us, overpowers us and seals our fate to be ever a stranger in a stranger land.
Recent group exhibitions include: Legacy, 30 th Anniversary, Boyle Arts Festival, 2019, Embodiment with G & N at Bo Lee Gallery, London (2018), Zoologia Fantastica, Solstice, Navan (2018), Fables of the Reconstruction, David & Schweitzer Contemporary, NY (2017), Self Portraits at BravinLee Programs, NY (2016) and Futures Anthology at The Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin (2015).
