Duane Reed Gallery proudly announces the return of Bryan Burk, presenting his latest body of work merging ceramic vessels with years of experience tattooing.

Bryan Burk is a ceramicist, painter, and tattoo artist operating out of Los Angeles, CA. He illustrates his vessels as he would a body: with vividly textured animal forms and their elaborately shaded furs, feathers, and scales. In addition to his ceramic work, Burk continues his artistry in his tattoo shop in Los Angeles: Dark Horse Tattoo.

As the advance of humanity across the planet continues to coincide with the development of technology, and more recently the increased creation and interaction with the entirely man-made “reality” of cyberspace; we find humanity turning a blind eye to the destruction and collapse of the natural world, as we retreat further into our isolation as a single species among millions.
