Nettie Burnett

Porto, 1949


The recent series of drawings Aging / Envelhecendo is a response to the internal stimulus, one that speaks of the transformations of substance in the passage of time, with an autobiographical and observant tone. Making use of an absolute refinement of the drawing technique, the artist presents the qualities of the skin that covers the nature of all things, visible and invisible.
