Burton Machen at Tomas Maier

Tomas Maier, the creative force behind the Italian luxe label Bottega Veneta, and owner of his own equally chic boutiques, will exhibit works from American photographer and artist Burton Machen beginning May 13 at the Tomas Maier boutique in Miami. Burton Machen's pieces are known for reflecting movement, the passing of time, and the effects of mankind. He wants the viewer to think that anything - detritus, graffiti, discarded paper - can be turned into art, and his work conveys a sense of development that's influenced by various forces to ultimately show the impact of humanity upon the world. A definite must-see!

Burton Machen's art work will be on display in Tomas Maier's Miami location starting May 13 running through summer 2010. His work has been featured in Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar and has showed at The Whitney Museum.
