ARTIST INFO

About 
Rosemary Burn, Rosemary Burn is a British figurative painter based in the UK. Her works have been exhibited in Italy, Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom and are held in several notable collections.  
The works are crafted from moments; those snippets of time from which a story can be found in the background, such as a dripping bath tap and the light carried in the ripples, a fly on the wall, the fleeting expression on a face, a nameless place. It seems to her that these happenings underpin our existence; big events, highs and lows, come and go but the insignificant and fleeting remain and repeat, like a constant hum in the background. Rosemary studied sculpture at Chelsea School of Art, London, gaining an MA in fine art. She also studied the piano at Trinity College of Music, London, achieving a performer’s diploma in the piano. 
Her works have been included in prestigious exhibitions such as the RA Summer Exhibition 2023, ING Discerning Eye 2023, SWLA 60th anniversary exhibition 'The Natural Eye,' Royal Institute of Oil Painters exhibition, 2018, 2019, 2020, Royal Society of Marine Artists 2022, Figurative Art Now, all at Mall Galleries London, Wells Art Contemporary 2022. She was shortlisted in 2023 for the Artgemini Prize. Rosemary has also shown at several international art fairs in Florence, New York and Paris and collaborated with three contemporary playwrights with a solo exhibition in London.
