David Burns primarily uses natural materials to create a conversation with the viewer and their natural world. Creating connections within spaces, both indoors and out, for the viewer to relax and contemplate thoughts provoked by the actions of the artist.
Since finishing his degree at the Winchester School of Art in 2009, were he specialised in Sculpture, he has been exhibiting work across America in Minnesota, Vermont and New York.
This work created at the Franconia Sculpture Park, Minnesota, was a reaction to the surrounding grounds of the park. The desire to create a space in which the viewer could take comfort within the environment, giving an opportunity to reflect, contemplate or to just simply relax.
The exterior is subtle and unknown. Resembling a buriel mound or paganistic place of worship, it provokes the human reaction to see inside. Once inside there are a number of things to notice, the mirror on the floor initially reflects the stone walls, but then alters to reveil the sky through a hole in the ceiling. The hole itself allows the viewer to gaze directly to the sky, as well as rotating a ball of light around the room as the day progresses.
Overall its a place of comfort, a place to have a conversation with the environment, a place to question.....

Hi Peter, I saw the `Majestic` buck that Wesley did and adored it, but I wanted something original. So we tossed ideas around with Wesley and finally decided on the owl. Wesley was so incredible to work with, providing us ongoing progress updates as he went along. We are absolutely rhrillllled with the result..When we return to our condo, we will have the moulding faux`d so he will stand out even more. I can`t begin to express how incredibly talented we feel Wesley ... [Read more]
