To many, motorsports is the purest form of
automobilia. With his background as a vintage racer, and a lifelong
passion for racing, it is no surprise that Burrows is naturally
attracted to racing as a subject matter for his art.
When asked what the best race he has ever seen was, "Any
one that I see from behind the wheel of my Morgan," comes
the quick reply. "I enjoy doing work about things that
actually happened on the race track, particularly if there is
a story behind it."
Burrows was once inspired to create a painting by a story on
the track, as he was passed by a fellow competitor at Summit
Point raceway, and was so struck by the moment visually that
he had to get it on canvas.
Some of Burrows most celebrated work materialized when he was
asked to do a suite celebrating the life of Enzo Ferrari. This
series gave him the opportunity to tell a fascinating story,
capturing on canvas seminal moments in Ferrari's illustrious
racing history by establishing historical scenes in the life
of the man behind the marque.
The racing community has long recognized his talents, and his
artwork has been included in such private collections as the
Peterson Automotive Museum, the Wine Country Motorsports Gallery
in Sonoma, California, BMW of North America, Brumos Porsche,
and the personal collection of famed racer Brian Redman.
