Angela Burns

Angela Burns is a well-known Dunedin artist who has been painting for over thirty years. Her preferred mediums are oil and acrylic on stretched canvas, and she loves to work on a large scale. Angela graduated in Painting, Ceramics and Sculpture from the School of Art at Otago Polytechnic, then later went on to graduate in Museum Studies and Art History.

Angela's art work reflects local land forms and scenes, in a somewhat expressionist abstract manner. Angela is particularly fond of fellow women abstract expressionists such as Lee Krasner, Eva Hesse and Joan Mitchell. In the numerous reviews on her work however, Angela's paintings have been compared to great New Zealand artists like Milan Mrkusich and Tosswill Woollaston.

In recognition of her work, Angela has been presented with the following awards:
Cleveland Art Awards, Merit award (2000)
Cleveland Art Awards, Merit award (1998)
Cleveland Art Awards, Honorable Mention (1996)
Mainland Art Awards, Third Prize (1995)
Telecom Awards, finalist (1995)
Kaitaia Aotearoa Arts Festival, 2nd prize (1990)

Angela is also active in exhibiting her expressionist paintings, both in solo and group exhibitions. To date her exhibitions have been held at various galleries in Dunedin, The Forrester Art Gallery (Oamaru), Artworks Gallery (Wanaka), Eastern Southland Gallery (Gore), Southland Museum and Art Gallery (Invercargill), CSA Gallery (Christchurch), Artline Gallery (Auckland), Louise Beale Gallery (Wellington). The majority of her work is now stocked and displayed at Gallery De Novo, where she holds regular popular exhibitions and has an ever growing fan base.

Angela was recently asked to participate in a touring exhibition of nine Dunedin artists, which went through to the North Island. Her work can also be found housed in numerous collections, both public and private, throughout the country and her work has a global appeal with sales throughout Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Australia. 

Below are the new works from Angela's latest show ON REFLECTION - a collection of work focusing on the landscapes and seascapes she has come to know and explore around coastal Otago and beyond.  I decided to take elements from all the areas that have influenced me in the past and include them in this diary of work, including Blue Skin Bay and inland, the Rock and Pillar range and the Maniototo.
