Bette Burgoyne

The beautiful shimmering work of Bette Burgoyne, who draws on black paper with white pencil. This basic "reversed" approach predicates a great many levels of depth that seem to billow like smoke from an absolute darkness. The textures appear to me like a confluence of many different steams and tissues. Mainly informed by the natural world, Burgoyne has said she intends to reveal a spectacle of wood, water, light & atmosphere.
These images borrowed graciously from her site. Look, also, to her blog.

Below is a small section of my favorite work Scroll, which is a continuous 10 foot drawing, followed by an excellent, cinematic video documentation.
