Ghostwriter is a painting in the Notism genre. This eerie ghost-like shape floats above Burkhardt’s daily multi-tasking scrawls making a striking visual statement that contrasts rich periwinkle blues with subtle, rich browns.
These paintings and concepts also connote the eventual non-existence (“not-ism”) of life as it drifts slowly into the distant black hole of the past. Even as our memories and achievements surround us with grace and aesthetic richness.
