Paintings: Toy Box

"Toy Box" by Robert Xavier Burden
On exhibit at the Shooting Gallery

Toy Box will consist of 16 oil paintings both on canvas and on panel, all of which place childhood icons into compositions of reverence and majesty. Backdrops that appear like ecclesiastical stained glass or elaborately woven rugs from afar reveal something different at closer view; characters once only at home in comics and cartoons are crossing over into the realms of oil portraits with the help of Burden’s imaginative eye and deft detailing.The funding for these paintings was raised via Kickstarter.
