Victoria Burge

Edition Review

  • Victoria Burge, Light Study I–III (2015)

  • Suite of three relief prints with embossing, 26 x 20 inches each. Edition of 15. Printed and published by Aspinwall Editions, New York. $750 each.

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
