Danielle Bursk's art is about accumulation and connection, concentrating primarily in drawing/painting and performance/video. She is known for her large-scale abstract ink drawings. Her work is primarily abstract and incremental; the accumulation of many small lines creating abstract forms that are suggestive of objects or landscapes. She relates her drawings to many things: nests, networks, webs, traps, nets, hair, vines, space, maps and more. Danielle's work speaks to the inter-connectivity of actions and associations.
Justin Bursk’s works are blatantly, playfully homemade. His work is the work of a tinkerer, exploring through doing. Where Price is rapid-fire crisp, and Manuse slow and poetic, Bursk is improvisatory, a series of “what-if” scenarios played out on his visual stage.
Also in this show Mark Price, Joe Manuse
