Over the course of a long career, painter and lithographer Samuel Buri has experimented in a variety of both figurative and abstract styles. After meeting Abstract Expressionist Sam Francis, Buri discarded his early interest in Post-Impressionism in favor of a delicate, lyrical abstract style that blended figurative concerns with some of the techniques of Op art, including grids and repeated patterns. He also experimented with ceramics, sculpture, and large-scale public murals. In Buri’s most famous series “Des Vaches: Mo, Ni, Que” (1971-1976), he created public installations comprising three vibrantly painted fiberglass cows grazing in site-specific configurations, reflecting his interest in both the mediums and imagery of Pop Art.
