Collection: Marianne Burlew


Marianne Burlew is an Ottawa-based artist who focuses on themes of empathy and identity in her work. While specializing in a wide range of media such as video and sculpture, her current work uses 3D modeling software to create emotional text-based works.

Burlew received her MFA from the University of Waterloo (2016), where she was able to complete internships with artists Saskia Olde Wolbers and Anne Hardy in London (UK) through the Keith and Win Shantz scholarship. Prior to this, Burlew earned her BFA from York University (2011) and participated as an artist-in-residence in the textile studio at the Harbourfront Centre for two years. She has exhibited around southern Ontario in such galleries as the Idea Exchange, Red Head Gallery, the Harbourfront Centre, the Gladstone Hotel, Craft Ontario Gallery, and the Mississauga Living Arts Centre. Her work is part of private collections as well as the City of Ottawa art collection and the Fibre Art Collection at Cambridge Art Galleries.
