Judith Burrows is a multi-disciplinary artist, photographer, and award-winning filmmaker.
Films have been screened at the London Film festival, Edinburgh, Los Angeles AFIF, and festivals around the world. Her film PULSE was projected on the National Theatre with sound running along the embankment, while documentaries are held in the National Portrait Gallery archive.
A desire for a more visceral expression of her ideas, and connection to materials and process, she began painting in 2015. A mixed media fine art practice resulted in exhibitions, commissions and acceptance at the RCA in 2018.
JB seeks connectivity in her working practice. Ideas may begin as photographs, or oil paintings on canvas, screen-prints, lithography or etching, then develop across metal or glass sculptures, and ultimately a film or sound piece.
Raw steel is currently the material that best carries her ideas, degrading and rusting through symbiotic interaction with organic matter. This becomes pigment for painting.
Traces and effluent of the processes; dust, decay, rust, ash, dead leaves, bones, sand, salt are collected and placed in hand-blown glass globes, like fragile glass coffins.
