Plump, embossed ellipses of pure white paper play across the surfaces of Victoria Burge’s recent prints. So subtle as to be nearly unreadable in reproduction, they are best viewed in person. The compositions evoke patterns commonly encountered in nature, but the crisp, abstract imagery implies an analytic approach. “Through photographic note-taking,” Burge says, “I have charted how certain conditions—wind, temperature, location, time—influence water’s interaction with light.”1
