Kim Burns

Wimbledon College of Arts

Burns’s takes “a very traditional approach to oil painting”. By choosing to produce work that combines figurative painting and surrealism, she aims to create work that is “believable”. Her current work is inspired by Victorian themes, animal symbolism and the idea of witchcraft and how this is related to feminist ideas of reclamation. Anthropomorphism is a prevalent feature of her work; she chooses to paint animals that are symbolic in historical texts and mythology. She attempts to give each figure an individual narrative.
