Cristina Burns


Cristina Burns, an American artist born in Spain but raised in Naples, Italy, where she still lives, approaches photography very young as her favorite form of expression. She creates surrealistic compositions through her photography by juxtaposing images of conflicting elements. In her work, she purposely blurs the thin lines that separate fantasy from reality, purity from sin, and life from death. In her compositions, she may fuse candies, toys and flowers with anatomical parts and insects, or juxtapose human animals with characters from well-known cartoons. Cristina digitally processes images, whereby she enhances and prints a very limited number of copies. The resulting print is the only record of her production.
