Ann C Burke, PhD. is a student and teacher of evolutionary morphology, a discipline of Biology concerned with understanding the pattern and diversification of forms over long lengths of time.
Burke’s enduring curiosity about the dynamics of time and change has taken her to many remote locations. In her art, she uses collected natural objects and her own innate curiosity to explore the roles of development and variation in respect to change.
This set of three-dimensional assemblages represent a renewed relationship to these objects; a re-consideration of function, grace, ornament and simply overlooked bits of nature.
