Burton to Burton

 

For over ten years filmmaker Dale Schierholt has examined the unique world of the visual artist by telling the stories of some of the art world’s most renowned figures. In addition to telling the stories of many recognizable names he has also been offering the same intimate portraits of several emerging artists across the country. In Burton to Burton, Schierholt, for the first time, is telling the story of two artists in one film. The film takes us inside the studios of California sculptors and sisters Jane Burton and Tyler Burton and offers viewers insight into the inspirations and motivations of these compelling artists’ work. By profiling two creative personalities in one film and intercutting these two stories into one narrative, Schierholt is also exploring the common thread that runs through the artistic persona - one in this case that is heightened by the sibling bond.
