Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde is a contemporary British artist, whose mixed media collage and print-work centres around scenes of the urban imaginary. Crossing medium and type, Bonnie and Clyde’s work takes the form of large-scale originals on paper and wood, screen-prints and 3D installation pieces.

Steph Burnley – the creative spark behind Bonnie and Clyde – will be presenting a new body of work for her exhibition, ‘This Place’ created specially for 45 Park Lane, Dorchester Collection‘s contemporary Mayfair Hotel. This show has been curated by Ackerman Studios in association with Liberty Gallery and will include mixed media originals, limited edition prints, and miniature dioramas in Cuban cigar boxes.

She also recently had a solo show titled DREAM BABY DREAM at Lilford Gallery Folkestone in October 2017.

Music and film, signage and iconography, bleed subtly into Bonnie and Clyde’s artwork, while her passion for twentieth-century architecture – from modernism, to brutalism, to postmodernism and beyond – suffuses the overall aesthetic. With a sensitivity to the relationship between the built environment and the natural landscape, the work of Bonnie and Clyde opens out a space in which to explore human interaction in urban sites. Her work responds emotionally to the delicate association of the socio-political and the deeply personal, in a way that resonates with contemporary cultures of modernity.

Bonnie and Clyde works with a combination of monochrome and highly saturated areas of colour, collaged with photography, textured paint, elements of distressed paper and printed cuttings, to represent the beautiful, messy, vibrant and chaotic nature of life in the city. Her work undergoes a combination of digital and tactile processes, playing with layers of material until the final collage or screen print takes shape. Through cut-up, bricolage perspective, each of Bonnie and Clyde’s abstracted pieces tells a story: a dizzying, non-linear narrative of the individual within the city.

The iconic topography of California – from the vibrant architecture of Santa Monica to rows of palm trees at Venice Beach – features heavily in Bonnie and Clyde’s imagined scenes. Not limited to a single corner of the globe, Burnley’s jet-setter spirit is reflected in the host of other urban centres  (including Tokyo, London, Reykjavik and Havana) that have featured across her oeuvre.

Bonnie and Clyde works from her studio in Brighton, UK. She has been represented by Liberty Gallery since 2009 and exhibits in London and throughout the UK, as well as internationally in Europe and the US alongside  working on commissions for private collectors.
