Broken Chain, Burnet Fine Art & Advisory’s newest exhibition, showcases a selection of work by Sonja Peterson ’90. 

Peterson builds networks of negative space into intricate large-scale cutouts in which mazes of quiet colors and soft shadows add depth to the age-old medium of paper. “Often my artwork is derived by looking at historical events and science to absorb present-day dilemmas,” notes Peterson. 

Peterson’s new work specifically explores instances of migration in the natural world through underlying themes of pattern and fragmentation. Migration connects two completely different and often very distant places, animals, plants, and people together. It also questions and challenges the notions of home and belonging. Many species are endangered due to loss of habitat within their long-patterned continuum.
