In, Wendy Burton’s fourth solo exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery, entitled Trace Elements III, the artist continues to explore abandoned and decaying structures as subjects for her photographic archaeology of the not so distant past in American civilization. These vacant buildings are often the product of what Burton refers to as the “rust belt,” areas where industry has moved on, resulting in the disintegration of entire communities. In Tema Celeste, Shana Nys Dambrot wrote, “…these are undeniable compelling subjects, saturated in a sort of rural collapse…yet the morbid lyricism of Burton’s tone is suggestive rather than judgmental…[their] meaning built on cobwebs and ghost stories.” This exhibition also includes a portfolio of images entitled, “What Remains,” made in post-Katrina New Orleans.
