Dorothea Rockburne

Rockburne, Dorothea, 1932–, American artist, b. Quebec, Canada. The configurations of Rockburne's constructions are predetermined by the nature of her materials and by various limiting rules of her procedure, e.g., mathematical set theory or methods of folding paper. Her works are generally made of paper, including thick, industrial stock, often soaked in oil, and carbon paper. Some contain elements of drawing.
