Artist Biography

Bobbie Burgers is a Vancouver-based artist whose work intimately examines the natural processes of decay, transformation, and metamorphosis. While florals have always been her primary source of inspiration, her unique understanding of their physical composition and metaphorical connotations have allowed her to push the classical subject to near abstraction. In addition to canvas, Burgers’ expressive mark-making and textural surfaces extend to collage and sculpture. Burgers has exhibited her work internationally, including in Sweden and China. Burgers is represented at Equinox Gallery in Vancouver, Caldwell Snyder in San Francisco, and Nicholas Metivier Gallery in Toronto.
