Artist Anthony Burnham received the members of the Cercle at his studio on February 13, 2017.


Born in 1973 in Montreal. Lives and works in Montreal.

Anthony Burnham’s pictorial approach focuses on representation and its methods. Sometimes composed of elements constructed and then transcribed like a still life; sometimes organised around found images and objects that have been mediated through various processes of mechanical reproduction (photography, photocopy, digital prints), Burnham’s intriguing combinations arise from a slow exploratory process of staging in the studio. His work questions how painting can revive its responsibility to representation. Burnham has come to the conclusion that, in the course of conceptualism’s attempt to separate itself from painting, contemporary painting can no longer be separated from conceptualism.
