Scott Burdick, 1967 | Figurative painter



Scott Burdick was born in Chicago, Illinois where his mother and father early on encouraged his interest in Art.
"I spent a lot of time in hospitals as a child and remember my mother showing me how to transform simple shapes like circles, triangles, and squares into objects like planes, helicopters, and fish. It seemed such a magical thing and made spending so much time in casts and on crutches much more bearable".
In high school, Scott began taking life-drawing classes at the American Academy of Art under the legendary Bill Parks.

Edna St.Vincent Millay | This beast that rends me in the sight of all, 1928


Marina Podgaevskaya, 1963 | Venetian

This beast that rends me in the sight of all,
This love, this longing, this oblivious thing,
That has me under as the last leaves fall,
Will glut, will sicken, will be gone by spring.

The wound will heal, the fever will abate,
The knotted hurt will slacken in the breast;
I shall forget before the flickers mate
Your look that is today my east and west.

Edna St. Vincent Millay | Time does not bring relief / Non da' sollievo il tempo


Gustav Pope🎨 | Awakening spring, 1877

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!

I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side

Edna St. Vincent Millay | When the Year Grows Old / Quando l’anno invecchia



I cannot but remember
When the year grows old -
October - November -
How she disliked the cold!

She used to watch the swallows
Go down across the sky,
And turn from the window
With a little sharp sigh.

And often when the brown leaves
Were brittle on the ground,
And the wind in the chimney
Made a melancholy sound.

Giorgos Seferis / Isaac Levitan | A word for Summer / Una parola sull'Estate, 1936



We’ve returned to autumn again; summer,
like an exercise book we’re tired of writing in, remains
full of deletions, abstract designs,
question marks in the margin; we’ve returned
to the season of eyes gazing
into the mirror under the electric light
closed lips and people strangers
in rooms in streets under the pepper-trees
while the headlights of cars massacre
thousands of pale masks.

We’ve returned; we always set out to return
to solitude, a fistful of earth, to the empty hands.
