Burning Desire is a series of new mixed-media works by Luanne E Witkowski. Combining a wide range of art materials Witkowski uses the patterns of woodgrain on panels to emphasize her response to shape and texture repeated and carried throughout the natural world. Burning and marking the surface suggests natural geographies and topographies, while the simplicity of line, relationships of shapes, and the content of color reveal the meaning and power of Witkowski's exploration.
