David Sanchez Burr’s Beyond Sunrise Mountain at Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery earlier this year was a thought-provoking autobiographical multimedia installation. At the show’s reception, a flamenco dancer tangoed while a guitarist plucked nylon-stringed chords, a nod to Burr’s Spanish roots. The artist himself strummed electric guitar—feedback emanating from speaker-housing sculptures of imploded Strip hotels. Black balloons, helium-sapped, fell. Billboards caked with red mud, dried and flaked off. Themes of beauty and decay, renewal and time’s conquering momentum, the sun’s rise and fall—and also man’s. Dawn is the only consistent gift in a valley of eternal change. DavidSanchezBurr.com.
