“Abstracting the Landscape” at Edgewater Gallery on the Green in Middlebury features the evocative, hybrid works of the Rhode Island School of Design painting instructor. Her paintings, writes the gallery, emerge from “the intersection of abstraction and representation.” Bureau moved to Vermont from Paris at age 8 and is the fourth generation of female painters in her family. “All aspects of an abstract painting can be found in nature,” she asserts. “Abstract shapes and colors, composition, line and texture are all elements that I draw on.” Bureau elegantly departs from the precious precision found in many landscapes, and claims that “Oil painting feels a bit out of control and free for me, very much like my day-to-day life — a beautiful mess.”
