Sigrid Burton American, b. 1951

Sigrid Burton is an American painter who lives and works in Pasadena, California.


Color and drawing are the foundation of Burton’s practice. For the artist, painting concerns an active visual colloquy, providing a view to an interior dialogue and an immersive experience beyond the quotidian, much like a symphony engages the ear. The imagery and color in Burton’s works are referential, extracted from natural objects and phenomena and are meant to evoke associations from the viewer, although these associations may differ from her personal sources, references and intentions.
