Michelle Burns

As an interdisciplinary artist, Michelle’s primary concern is the consideration of the relationship between modern humans and machines as technology becomes ever more advanced. Michelle’s work challenges traditional processes of painting through the fusing of the physical and virtual to question the meaning of aesthetics in the 21st Century.
