The artist

Born in 1982 in the small Spanish city of El Puerto de Santa Maria, the artist Cristina Burns invites us to observe the world through the prism of a humorous and whimsical lens. The juxtaposition of opposing elements, such as sweets, toys, and flowers with anatomical parts and insects, enables her to create surrealist assemblages that recall the European cabinet of curiosities of the 17th century and museums of anthropological oddities. Enjoying international renown, Cristina Burns has shown her work in the United States, Europe, Israel, and Japan. In April 2015, the magazine Vogue Italy presented her photographs at the Leica Gallery in Milan. Other shots from the Through the Mirror series were also selected to feature in the anthology Anatomy Rocks alongside works by 60 other contemporary artists, including the illustrious Damien Hirst.  ...

About the artwork

From Naples, where she resides, Cristina Burns is constantly experimenting with new artistic techniques and technologies in order to open up the doors of an imaginary world worthy of Lewis Carroll?s Alice in Wonderland. She became interested in photography at an adult age when she was looking for a medium that could physically reconstruct the visions, dreams, and nightmares that have stayed with her since childhood. The artist composes assemblages using toys, skeletons, and insects found at flea markets. She decontextualises these abandoned objects, giving them a new life that takes on hidden meaning. The kaleidoscopic images and enchanting microcosms that she produces thus seem to stimulate the spectator?s subconscious. Are we confronted by a Rorschach test when we delve our gaze into one of the compositions of the Through the Mirror series? Is the clinical tool of interpreting symmetrical ink splotches used deliberately by the artist to test our subconscious?
