“NARRATIVE”
Art Exhibition

Bette Burgoyne

AXIS Pioneer Square, Seattle USA

Opening Reception 2016
Thursday, November 3rd from 5-9pm
“Narrative” brings together an all-female cast of artists in a show of largely allegorical, highly detailed, and emotionally resonant works. 

Reilly Jensen invites the viewer to spend blissful hours at the junkyard with multitudes of ruined and discarded parts, artifacts of consumerism and desire for novelty. Inspired by objects that morph between the mechanical and organic, she blends reality with imagination in her paintings.


Izzie Klingels is drawn to building ‘feminine’ attributes into her work, such as sparkle, shimmer, and delicacy. Using obsessive details and rich texture, she describes fragments of a larger narrative.


Bette Burgoyne works monochromatically, restraining herself to a black and white palette. Her newest series “Smoke Noir” features women’s hands holding pipes that billow a peculiar smoke, suggestive of shadowy notions.


Artwork up until January 5th, 2017

Happy to announce my cover and inside illustrations for the forthcoming publication The Cathedral of Mist by Paul Willems. It is a collection of short stories translated from French by Edward Gauvin and published by Wakefield Press.  The Cathedral of Mist is beautiful and gently spooky story.  I look forward to seeing the book this Spring 2016.
