Sigrid Burton New Works on Paper: Online Exclusive


Sigrid Burton draw's literally and figuratively from the natural world. Her drawing and mark-making refer to and derive from botanical and biological anatomies, including marine life and the structures of both macro and micro cosmologies and writing systems, such as logograms and constellation diagrams.  Burton's sources include collected objects, such as shells, botanical matter, bones, ephemera, photographic resources, and the direct observation of natural phenomena, including the cosmos, landscape, and weather.


The specific content of these new works on paper are intended to be ambiguous, yet evocative, referencing light and spatial phenomena, a common language of forms, and a shared cross-cultural use of symbols.
