The Artist: Tom Burrows (Canadian, 1940-) is an internationally recognized artist whose primary medium is cast polymer resin. 

Burrows received a Bachelor of Art in Art History and Sociology from the University of British Columbia in 1967, and continued post-graduate studies in sculpture at St. Martin's School of Art, London, England until 1969. He has held solo exhibitions in London, Tokyo, Berlin, New York, and across Canada.

Following the immediate succession of solo exhibitions by Rodney Graham and Ai Weiwei at the Helen and Morris Belkin Art Gallery, the institute mounted a 50-year survey of Burrows’ work in 2015. The artist's work is held in private, corporate, and public collections across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Most recently, his polymer resin works were acquired for the permanent collection of Canada House, in Trafalgar Square, London, and the HBC Global Art Collection in New York. Tom Burrows lives and works between Hornby Island and Vancouver.

The Story: This piece is part of the The Drawn Objects series of small monochrome panels which play with opacity and surface texture to give the illusion of a panel lit from within. This series was exhibited at the Gallery of the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo in 1994. The artist is now known internationally for his colour-field panels which began with the monochrome objects. This peice shimmers and glows as you move around it. It has depth yet it is so light.
