Los Angeles artist Jean Burg’s painted reliefs and original graphics
deal primarily with movement, energy, color and gesture. The energetic
forms seek to confront the viewer with the question of reality versus
illusion. The sculptural works are made of Kydex, a vinyl material,
polychromed, and often include aluminum, copper, brass or stainless
steel. The prints, either etchings or monoprints, are produced with
color fast inks on imported rag paper.
Jean Burg is a graduate of Otis Art Institute and has taught there for
many years as well as at Occidental College and Woodbury University. She
was co-founder of Triad Graphic Workshop in Los Angeles and past
president of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. Her works are in
numerous public and private collections including Zerox Corporation,
I.B.M., Standard Oil, and the White House Collection. She has exhibited
widely in the United States and abroad, at Los Angeles County Museum, La
Jolla Museum, Long Beach Museum, Oakland Museum, Museum of Fine Arts,
Boston, Seattle Museum and many other museums and galleries.
