Victoria Burge explores the mapping of celestial systems in her work. In Blue Moon, she depicts constellations in their star patterns and more subtly, their namesake mythological characters. Burge often incorporates the atlases, charts, and ephemera that she collects, like an antique book page in this work.
Victoria Burge, b. 1976, is a printmaker and horticulturalist. She lives in Philadelphia.
