With 'Uncertain States' Judith Burrows presents a site specific installation comprising metal wall panels and sculptures, lithographs and paintings that challenge concepts of time and memory while embodying both age and agelessness.

Lone figures in empty streets and deserted landscapes are a recurring motif in her paintings, with a palette defined by pigments derived from rust and organic sources. Similarly rich tones are evident in her metal sculptures, achieved by a deliberate alchemical process of corrosion and decay, thus creating a fragility with an overriding theme of lostness, uncertainty and precarity.

Initially conceived in 2018 as a response to political and societal unease, latent notions of misplacement and disempowerment combined with a heightened state of impending environmental disaster have only been exacerbated by this year's global pandemic.

With London in lockdown, the City resembles Burrows' barren landscapes and provides the natural backdrop for her exhibition in these uncertain times.
Judith Burrows is a multi-disciplinary fine artist who lives and works in London. 

Alongside assignments and exhibitions in photography and film screenings, Burrows began painting in 2012. A mixed media practice garnered exhibitions and painting commissions.

To develop her practice she is currently studying for an MA in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art, London and is due to complete her degree in 2021 following deferment of her graduation.
