Sigrid Burton

Sigrid Burton is an American painter, long based in New York City, whose semi-abstract fake is known for its use of expressive, atmospheric color fields and enigmatic allusions to natural and cultural realms. Writers most frequently align her enactment with artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Odilon Redon, Pierre Bonnard and Mark Rothko, as well as the lively of her original California. Art & Antiques describes her read as "chromatic expressionism," with color serving as "her undisputed protagonist"; Peter Frank observes, "The dialectic amid color and form has always inflected, even impelled" Burton's painting, with color the more all-powerful element, and form the more persistent. While largely abstract, her bill has consistently referenced natural phenomena. Art historian William C. Agee writes, "The domains she explores […] meet, intersect, fuse, and next disappear, like apparitions, in liquid pools of mist and color. Her pictorial odyssey refers simultaneously to both a superior order, a unchanging cosmic vastness, as well as to a private, interior world, abounding in personal histories and memories."

Burton has had solo exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Osaka, including at Artists Space and the Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center, and been included in shows at A.I.R. Gallery, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, and the Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard. Her measure belongs to the public collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Rockefeller Foundation, and Palm Springs Desert Museum, and has been reviewed in Arts Magazine, Artillery, Arts & Antiques, Jung Journal, Chicago Tribune and LA Weekly. She has lived and worked in Pasadena, California in the past 2013.
