Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2022

 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.

“I view the objects I draw as characters in a scene that the viewer is seeing by accident. They’re lovers and friends, playing out intimate moments that I hope can be related to.”
