Jean Burdick

Jean Burdick is a painter and printmaker who lives and maintains a studio in Bucks County, PA.  Her process involves successive layers of patterns, textures, shapes and colors, beginning with silkscreen printing and enhanced by drawing, painting, printing and experimental mark-making. Elements of the natural world are magnified, overlapped and obscured, reflecting the continual growth and change, which is the touchstone of the natural world.

Burdick received her MFA degree from The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA, and her BFA from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, and has worked as a textile designer and an arts educator. Jean is represented by Cerulean Arts Gallery, Philadelphia. She is the recipient of awards and honors including a Visual Artist Residency to the Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada in 2004; Geraldine R.

Janine Dunn Wade

We are excited to welcome Janine Dunn Wade back to exhibit with us at The Lodge for the third time. It’s been a thrill to experience her ever evolving exuberance, a liberating growth in her work that involves risk-taking in style and scale. Her strokes, expanding with bold confidence, celebrate color and light and reverberate on the joyful edge between realism and abstraction. 

Dunn Wade searches unapologetically to convey beauty in her floral portraits.  Her work embodies flamboyant lyricism.  As she listens to Bach Flute Partitas while painting, she seems to translate that excitement onto her canvases.  She says:  “You really need to be in the moment to paint. It is so difficult to get there and really start to see the forms, gestures, tones, color and direction. It is almost impossible to pull yourself away when you finally get the flow moving. I have always been fascinated by how the direction of the stroke and the exact tone and color of the paint can make an enormous difference.  To explore the “moment,” I love to do two paintings at the same time. Even with the intent to use the same paint, stroke, and placement, it is amazing to see how the life of the painting can move in different directions. Comparing the end products, the variables, and the process unfolding along the way can be totally mind blowing….”
Dunn Wade’s sources of inspiration range from Wolf Kahn to Fairfield Porter to Diebenkorn. She has a BFA from Villanova University and also studied art in Italy and Mexico. She resides in Bucks County, Pa. and has exhibited in galleries throughout Pennsylvania.
