Monica Burns

Monica Burns works predominantly with greylead pencil, ink, watercolour paint and gouache, drawing inspiration from musicals, theatre brochures, landscapes and people. Complex webs of energetic lines connect overlapping shapes creating intuitively beautiful compositions, animating her characters with both joy and violence.

She has been included in numerous group exhibitions at Arts Project including Luminous kinship, sentient kingdom, (2017) Into the Vault and Out of the Box, (2014) and Australiana, (2010), and annually in the Annual Gala exhibition. Internationally, Burns has also exhibited in Histoire de vivre, l’Orangerie du Luxembourg, Paris, France (2014).
