Elliott Puckette’s delicate and ethereal paintings are a continual exploration of the line, characterized by their calligraphic nature while also evocative of written music and ancient script. Her linear abstraction is rendered either by etching into prepared ground with a razor blade or drawing meticulously with ink on an expanse of paper.
Puckette received her BFA from Cooper Union in New York in 1989. Her works are included in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New York Public Library, the Fogg Museum, and the Huntsville Museum of Art. She has been represented by Paul Kasmin Gallery since 1993.
