Painting above is “Arrival” by Brian Burke - 1992. This documentary is about Brian Burke, an artist from Prince Edward Island. Figure In A Landscape is a film about the creative process, and how it can enrich the life of an artist. It is about wonderful paintings, and about the futility of trying to interpret a work of art. This program is for all audiences. It tells its story simply without narration, yet the simplicity is wonderfully deceptive. It is a sophisticated film which uses humour, irony, and a little romance to tell its story. Wild, bluesy music played by Brian and his friends serves to accent the wonderful images and powerful paintings illustrated in the film.
