Inge Burman A&M1

Originally from Pretoria, South Africa, I lived and worked in Cape Town from 1995-2022. I recently relocated to Maryland and have joined Artists & Makers Studios.

I hold a BA Visual Arts (2010) and an associate’s degree in journalism. Additionally, I have pursued continuing education and training, including mentorship, community arts facilitation and volunteering.

My work has encompassed oils, acrylics and watercolors, pastels, ceramic sculpture, linocut printing and collage, and often incorporated embroidery and knitting. My thematic/conceptual interests concern the complexities of the human condition and the role of duality in our social and psychological worlds.

I have participated in several group exhibitions over the years including at Beit Berl, Israel (1982), the Natal Society of Arts, the AVA and Ruth Prowse Art School (1990’s), the Innovative Threads Exhibition at Artspace Durban (2007), and the ‘Mi’Story Exhibition at the Jean Welz Gallery in Worcester. In 2012 my work, ‘Hestia’s Lament’ was a finalist in the prestigious Vuleka competition, in 2013 ‘Emancipation 11’ appeared in the Sasol New Signatures finals. In 2014 I had two works, ’Urban Palimpsest’ and ‘Mirage’ in the finals of the Vuleka competition and in 2015 I won first place with ‘Undergrowth’. Most recently, my work appeared in “Paper” at Glen Carlou gallery in 2021 and Edg Gallery – an online exhibition in 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
