For the last 9 years, Sigrid Burton has been involved at the Carnegie Observatories based near her home and studio in Pasadena. It has had a strong impact on her work. Burton states: “Attending lectures on developments in astronomy and astrophysics, and visiting observatories, including Las Campanas in Chile, as well as the exposure to the extraordinary visual imagery currently being generated from observations in deep space, have allowed me to expand my thinking about the exciting interrelations of micro and macrocosmic configurations – the unifying structures and forms of the world around us and beyond.”

The five paintings currently on exhibit are gestural abstractions of organic forms placed within a rich color palette and atmospheric background; reflecting the artist’s thoughts about space and depth, and the resonance of color. — Jeannie Denholm
