About Elliott Puckette

Elliott Puckette is known for creating graceful drawn and painted abstractions in which wandering lines move weightlessly throughout sparse monochrome spaces. Her imagery evokes bodily forms and musical notation, and her calligraphic style invites comparison to that of Brice Marden and Joan Miró. Unlike Miró’s automatic drawings, however, Puckette’s works are created with considerable deliberation and care. She also makes collages, tearing her drawings and reattaching them with glue, the imperfect bonded areas representing a loss of control.

American, b. 1967, Lexington, Kentucky, based in Brooklyn, New York
