Gallery of Work ~ Nest Baskets

Each of these nests tells a different narrative: the relationship of sisters, exploring an aspect of nature, remembering an event or emotion.

The basket is coiled of fabrics or vines incorporating collected treasures and layered with paint and natural textures.

"The basket-nests of Patricia Burleson seem to be whimsical at first, but in longer viewing are profound statements on the artifacts of women's lives and the world's detritus... Soldiers and body parts of dolls lend the pieces a sadness on the state of the world."
