Brandt-Roberts Galleries is pleased to present Quiet Settling. This solo exhibition by acclaimed Columbus-based artist Christopher Burk features over fifteen oil paintings from the artist’s new volcanic ash series.

The Volcanic Ash series shifts Burk’s painting in a new direction, yet holds ties to his previous work. Like Burk’s Flooded Landscape series, this new series explores various dichotomies. On the surface, the subject matter speaks to climate change and the age-old battle of man versus nature. There is also a sense of peril juxtaposed with a placidness as the lone house seems surrounded and dwarfed by the impending ash. The houses sit amongst seemingly total destruction. However, volcanic ash isn’t as destructive as molten lava, and instead blankets the landscape like snow, perfectly preserving all it has engulfed. The velvety ash seems to almost swaddle the home which calms the heaviness of the scene. It is the grace in which Burk handles the imagery, composition, and color palette that creates a sense of comfort and contemplation in these works. Hard-edged, richly colored structures are presented against a backdrop of distant hills and hazey, blue skies.

Quiet Settling is on view starting Saturday, October 2nd with a Gallery Hop Exhibition Reception from 1-7pm. The exhibition will be on view through October 31st during gallery hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 1-5pm, and by private appointment. Private appointments and early previews can be requested by emailing [email protected] or calling 614.223.1655. A virtual exhibition will be available at
