Meet the Artist: Christy Burdock

1 – 3pm; artist talk at 2pm

Visual Arts in Rural Communities

A chance to meet VARC's new resident artist Christy Burdock at Highgreen, where she will be based for eight months.

An informal opportunity to meet Christy in her studio and hear more about her practice and plans for her residency. Christy makes painting and drawings, often of people. She has work in many public and private collections and is excited about living in a place very different from her home town.

Researching groups and communities, in situ, across the country, then drawing in my studio from memory, I create works that are based in the here and now, but steeped in philosophy and historical narrative. I have an interest in ideas, religion, history and heritage, communicating and reinterpreting emerging culture, as it manifests within contemporary society.
