Planthouse announces the publication of a new print edition with Philadelphia-based artist Victoria Burge, which will be on view at the 2017 E/AB Fair. Named after the wispy Cirrus clouds, the print’s imagery is inspired by atmospheric ephemera: light reflecting on water; particles of snow hanging in thick cold air; the changing landscape of a cloud. Burge imagines the topographic surfaces of these phenomena as abstract terrains in each of the four hand-drawn layers of the print, including the painterly background. Subtle variations in color and a dense network of circular nodes and trembling lines capture a sense of effervescence and movement. Cirrus builds upon Burge’s interest in celestial mapping and recent work that renders the effects of light through an elegantly minimal aesthetic. This latest print presents a new exploration of depth through a delicate system of layering.
