Burton Luke

MA sculpture, Royal College of Art, 2011-2013
BA Painting, Chelsea College of Art, 2002-2005

Luke Burton (b.1983, London) lives and works in London. Burton’s work crosses sculpture, installation, photography, video and drawing to explore the irreducible complexity of aesthetic reception and pleasure, and probe the convoluted relationship between architecture, class and taste. Humour and play infiltrate a restrained and serious language of the decorative within his work and enable a critical dissidence from formal and socio-political constraints.

Recent exhibitions include, An Uneventful Day, Carroll/ Fletcher, London, Love / Architecture, Turner Contemporary, Margate; A Dense Glitter of Alternatives, Vitrine Gallery, London and Beat, MK Gallery, Milton Keynes (all 2013).
