Her recent works is dark and moody. Oftentimes portrays of animals. Wolves and bears.
As her website states Lucy Burns takes “inspiration from the folklore of Wales, and in particular the surreal and mythical qualities expressed in the stories of the Mabinogion.” [source]
The Mabinogion is the title of a collection of eleven prose stories collated from medieval Welsh manuscripts. All the tales focus on Celtic mythology – back from the pre-Christian times.
Showcasing her interpretation of “The Mabinogion”, Lucy Burns held her first solo exhibition at St Dogmaels’ Coach House in November 2013.
First solo show is approaching, be good to see some familiar faces (&new ones) Starts at 6.30pm http://t.co/Gi7SAIFQWh—
