Named after the wispy Cirrus cloud, this 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. 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 a minimal aesthetic.
