Alana Burns

Alana Burns (b. 1988, Mexico) lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico. Her work as an artist started with poetry and an investigation of nostalgia and time. Today her art takes the form of wax painting, she transforms colored wax into floating worlds, returning the material to its essence. Her sculptural project is an exploration, too, of how small interventions and attentions might transform and make in solid form the ephemeral ideas of memory, using the form of the shell as a starting point and thus as a collaborator to create an everyday treasure.
