John Burt Sanders

John Burt Sanders’ work employs simple, formal visual elements of color, texture and composition to explore systems of order and their inherent weaknesses. The artist’s curvilinear, painted forms are derived from the solutions to two-dimensional mazes, suggesting maps of unknown locations or cellular formations—among other imagery. Sanders draws influence from Ursula K. Le Guin and other science fiction authors, sharing their affinity for reflecting on humanity at a certain self-referential distance.
