Elliott Puckette

Artist Bio

Elliott Puckette’s works are elegant compositions resulting from a labor intensive process of applying generous layers of gesso to a panel, then they are overlaid with a subtle palette of ink wash. The surface is then carved with a razor blade producing a foreground of sinuous hard lines. The effect created is that of a buoyant field of calligraphic lines over the contrasting billowing ground of ink wash.

Puckette’s work has been reviewed in numerous publications including, Art in America, Artforum, Art + Auction, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Elle Décor and Vogue. Her works are in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, The New York Public Library and the Fogg Art Museum in Boston. Elliott was born in Lexington, Kentucky and received a B.F.A. from Cooper Union, New York. Elliott lives and works in Brooklyn, NY with her husband, Hugo Guinness, and their two young children.
