About me

Eóin Burke is a contemporary American artist whose work is rooted in the Christian contemplative tradition, focusing on mindfulness and sacredness in our lives. Artistically influenced by a range of sources including Alberto Giacometti, Edgar Degas, Martha Graham, Paul Cézanne and classical Greek sculpture, Burke builds up gestural figures and portraits in epoxy clay over paper, wood, and linen. He is excited by new technology’s ability to reimagine ancient art forms, utilizing synthetic materials and exploring 3-D printing. Originally confined to the hard surfaces of stone or wood, Burke now brings in the softness and intimacy of epoxy clay and paper in order to highlight the fragility and beauty of people. He received his MFA from Yale University in New Haven, CT and his BFA from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. Notable shows include A-ONE (Silvermine Galleries, New Canaan); The Mill St. Show (New Haven); Ineffable Manifestations (Yale Institute of Sacred Music); The Open (Deitch Projects, Long Island City); Figure 8 (Artspace, New Haven). Burke’s sculptures are in public and private collections throughout the country. He recently completed a series of figures for the non-profit Peace Right Here, a depiction of twelve spiritual practices toward personal and communal peace, and was commissioned to create a large meditative work for the Wellness Space at CT Innovations. He lives and works in New Haven, CT.
