Gail Burton

Country of residence United Kingdom
Contact 07814 812 338 gailburton2@hotmail.com

Gail Burton's work encompasses drawing, painting, text, performance, film, bookworks and installation. She explores ideas of loss, memory, history and commemoration, creating drawings from ephemeral materials such as Kleenex and rizla paper, portraits, and text works such as posters & 'text paintings.' The walk is a key theme in her work in both live art and writing; a means to re-explore the everyday, create a micro-history of place, and as a lens onto themes of filth and memorialisation. Her blog matchboxrizla.blogspot.com is an ongoing archive of drawings and documentation. She is part of the collaborative live art project walkwalkwalk and a founder member of WAN, the Walking Artist’s Network.
