Drawing enters Chinese Museum Collection
One of my drawings of Granary Square will enter the collection of the Jiangsu Arts and Crafts Museum in China later this year as part of the Priseman Seabrook Contemporary British Painting collection.
My painting, Family 4, is reproduced in the Indian Quarterly magazine, alongside an article by Shougat Dasgupta, reflecting on the politics of parenthood. The Indian Quarterly is a magazine focusing on arts, culture and society, produced in Mumbai, that describes itself as "an oasis of calm thoughtfulness". See the article here
Pathways of Settlement
Dr Susanne Wessendorf presenting Pathways of Settlement at Hackney Museum 10 November 2016
I am collaborating with Dr Susanne Wessendorf, social anthropologist at the International Inequalities Institute, London School of Economics, who has invited me to make paintings to accompany her research project that explores the lives of recent migrants to East London. Dr Wessendorf gave a presentation about the research at Hackney Museum on Thursday 10 November 2016.

The exhibition IN THE CITY will tour to the East Gallery at Norwich University of the Arts in Summer 2018. The exhibition includes paintings depicting cities on four continents by Trevor Burgess, Mark Crofton Bell, Stephen Carter, Marguerite Horner, Barbara Howie, Matthew Krishanu, Lee Maelzer, Jock McFadyen and Tanmoy Samanta. See the exhibition catalogue, with introduction by Robert Harbison, in "About the Work" on the Catalogue page.
'Burgess has brought together a varied line-up of works that reflects the breadth of urban expression in contemporary painting and challenges any perception that it is an ill-equipped medium to represent the modern world'
