Summary

<p>Jean Burdick. Image courtesy of the artist.</p>

"My process involves successive layers of patterns, textures, shapes and colors, beginning with silkscreen printing and enhanced by drawing, painting, printing and experimental mark-making. Each layer magnifies, overlaps, obscures or otherwise enhances the layers that came before. Re imaging what I have experienced eventually results in an image that is no longer constrained by the elements of the natural world that inspired it.

Ultimately, I hope that my work can provide the viewer with a window into my world, and a resonance with their own."
-Jean Burdick

Jean Burdick received her Bachelor of Fine Art from Pratt Institute in 1973, a Master of Art Education in 1998 from Kutztown University, and a Master of Fine Art in painting from the University of the Arts in 2003. She worked as a textile designer at Groot and Misolve Designs from 1975 to 1985 in New York, NY. Since 1975, she has also worked as an art educator teaching a range of elementary to high school students and served as a district fine-art coordinator as well as an art-department chair. In 1981, Burdick and her husband moved from New York to Bucks County. She was the recipient of an artist residency in visual arts at the Banff Center in Canada in 2004. In 2007, she was awarded the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Visual Artist/Educator Grant to study with a master printer in Italy.

Burdick's work explores the relationships between natural and human-made design. She is inspired by her observations of the interconnected and interdependent systems of the forms, textures and patterns found in nature. Her works have been exhibited regionally and nationally and are included in public, corporate, and private collections including Capital Health Medical Center, Johnson and Johnson Headquarters, University Medical Center of Princeton, Miller School of Medicine, Yeshiva University, Mercy Health System, AtlantiCare, and the Mercer County Cultural and Historical Society. Burdick lives and maintains a studio in Bucks County.
