Cassens Fine Art is thrilled to present “In Living Color,” an exhibition showcasing a new dimension in realist painter Bailey Burton’s art. Adding color into the backdrop of every stunning portrait of wildlife in this series for the first time, Burton brings the likeness of animals big and small alive with every stroke of oil paint on the canvas. 

 

“With this particular body of work, I decided to step out of my comfort zone a bit. Until now, I've been known for using black backgrounds with the main subject being the wildlife animal in my paintings. This is the first time I've injected more color into my work, exploring different backgrounds,” says Burton.

 

Burton’s always been an artist. Growing up, she was always drawing and experimenting with paint as her most beloved hobby. But her career in art began to take off when she participated in her first art show in August of 2021. Burton captivates viewers of her art with an unmatched precision, dialing the detail down to every last hair and feather. First a fisheries and wildlife major, Burton sees her art as a platform to give back and contribute to a larger purpose. Her goal is to leave a lasting legacy that transcends traditional aesthetics, promoting a meaningful impact on the world of art and conservation.

 

“I'm really excited about sharing this collection because I've never been this passionate or more immersed in a body of work before,” shares Burton. “My main focus is on the conservation side. I aim to contribute as much as I can, giving my art a purpose beyond just a painting. If I can give back to wildlife and continue the full circle from my initial aspirations [as someone who holds a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife], that would be incredible. I want to seize any opportunity to contribute in that way.”
