For his video studio tour, Luke Burton (Girton College Artist in Residence 2019-20) discussed the work he has made whilst being at Girton, the material and conceptual processes in his art practice using the mediums of vitreous enamel and painting and his plans for his forthcoming exhibition at the college in the Summer of 2021 – in particular how the idiosyncrasies of the site have had such a profound influence in making this new body of work.

Luke studied painting at Chelsea College of Art (BA, 2005) and Sculpture at Royal College of Art ( MA, 2011). He has shown his work internationally including at venues such as ICA, London; National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; Kinokino Kunstal, Sandnes, Norway; Technopolis Museum, Athens; Yarat Art Centre, Baku; Manoir di Martigny, Martigny; PADA, Lisbon. His work is in various private and institutional collections. He will have a solo show at Girton College as part of his residency in June 2021 and has upcoming exhibitions at Bosse and Baum, London and Gallery Woong at Korean International Art Fair, Seoul in September 2020. Luke is represented by Bosse and Baum Gallery in London.
