Emily Burns (b. 1986, Warrenton, VA)
My recent work investigates the inner complexities of women through intimate glimpses of parallel environments. I am interested in the vulnerability of beauty, and the eternalization of my subjects through the process of painting. Texture, pixelation, color and sensuality invite the viewer to acknowledge the arousing quality of the images.
Education: BFA, Penn State University, 2008.
Emily Burns was chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #5 of the 2012 ArtSlant Showcase Series.
