For the past few years, artist Colin Burns has been working on a series of intimate drawings and linocut prints. They are portraits of women derived from found imagery.

The drawings with text follow a simple formula that allow for a variety of styles and aim to create a tension between beauty, gravity and a darkly comic outlook.
 
Subjects range from movie and television stars, adult film actors, friends and internet acquaintances, Manson girls and cult members.

Separated from their surroundings, they exist in blank landscapes or layered terrains of maps, dots, and unresolved drawing. The text is original, fragments from song lyrics or film dialogue, or snippets from overheard conversation.
 
All Christopher Walken pieces are a celebration of a long time obsession.
