Chris Ware on Charles Burns in VQR

Burns One Eye

Virginia Quarterly Review    |    Chris Ware    |    February 9, 2007

Charles Burns' One Eye is excerpted in the Winter 2007 Virginia Quarterly Review (Vol. 83, No. 1) along with a glowing intro from Chris Ware.

"[Burns’ images] show a remarkably colorful range of feeling and a curious compositional acumen... [The] 'internal perspectives' that they suggest... are refreshingly approachable and unassuming. I find it amazing that although they originated simply as an exercise, they ended up both uncertainly poetic and certainly lucid, with a visual clarity that is characteristically Charles’ own." -Chris Ware
