Oil pastel and colored pencil on paper | 2021
In her new series, artist Laura Burke creates order out of chaos, capturing fleeting moments in time in oil pastel, colored pencil, and wax crayon. Each work is a suspended moment that captures inanimate objects—each balanced precariously—the moment before they fall. By drawing objects that are ephemeral in nature, Burke suspends their precarious lives in time and space, encouraging the viewer to look and keep looking—afraid to turn away lest the arrangement fall.
