¨My guiding principle from the beginning has been that my art should reflect my entire life experience.  The works of Picasso, Max Beckmann, Kitaj, and James Weeks are examples of this practice.¨

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                      - James Burpee

¨His large talent and his passion for painting--its practice, its culture, and its capacity to connect us across time and space--deserve wide recognition.¨

                                                                                                    - Robert Berlind

¨The reason I continued to paint figuratively rather than abstractly was that in figurative painting I thought I could do

both simultaneously.¨

                                                                                                   - James Weeks
