With inky black shadows, and a limitless range of gray washes, Amanda Burnham’s crumbling urban and exurban landscapes are almost entirely devoid of people, like cartoon snapshots taken a month or so after the rapture. Here Burnham combines drawing with installation to ghostly effect, with dangling street signs and tangled chain link fence etched onto the wall and enfolding the viewer.
Burnham has exhibited her work widely. She is represented by the Dorsch Gallery in Miami, FL. Locally, she has participated in solo and group exhibitions at Loyola University, the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, MICA, and the University of Maryland, College Park. Other venues include GV/AS Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Harrington Arts (San Francisco, CA), the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Cranbrook Institute of Art.
Burnham holds a BA from Harvard, an MFA from Yale, and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art+Design, Art History, Art Education at Towson University.
