Winter's Veil No.5
Black & White Photograph
Archival black and white photographic print on 100 percent cotton rag paper using archival pigment inks. Limited edition of 25. This highly abstract images seek to transcend boundaries of formal and scale recognition. Flowing lines and curved forms in the ice are interrupted by spiky, angular forms and layered textures. The seemingly random crystalline forms and structures evoke associations with landforms (aerial photography) and microcrystalline structures (photomicrography) and leave room for endless possibilities of interpretation. Most of all, for Bourrett, they offer the opportunity to find and make strongly graphic yet highly detailed, rich images.
