Fay Burnett


Cyanotype on paper

With thanks to the late-spring/early-summer sun of lockdown. Bust is a self portrait, a realignment and remembering of her 'being'. 


Artist Statement


Fay Burnett is a Welsh artist creating environmentally aware work within themes of TIME, the witness, vulnerability, relationship, gender, communication, mythology, presence and ALIVENESS.

She uses her body and experience as research tools, her method of research is activity.

Fay’s work is integrally performative. These print works are the result of a performative process in which her full body interacts with the materials - paper, photosensitive chemicals, sunlight - to leave its impression. Fay explores radical, tender and true expression through physical body movement. 

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Fay has been building a body of work of Cyanotype self portraits. They act as journal entries, capturing a time of external constraints and inner liberation.
