This site shows many of my most recent paintings and drawings. The majority of these works were made in Australia and France. Most were produced en plein air. A few were then completed in the studio. I hope you enjoy them. Some of the works are still available for purchase although a number have sold and are in private collections. If you would like to contact me in regard to an interest in my work, you can download information about me (including my contact details) from the cv section of the Blog.
Ron McBurnie is currently an Adjunct lecturer at James Cook University in North Queensland. Although his work relates strongly to the tropical environment where he lives, it also draws its inspiration from an earlier tradition of British and European printmaking and painting.
Ron is currently the Director of Monsoon Publishing, a printmaking and Book Arts studio based in Townsville. Monsoon publishes collaborative editions with many premier Australian Artists. Ron has travelled widely and has been Artist-in-residence at Carleton College Minnesota, Frans Masereel, Centrum Belgium, ANU Canberra, University of Southern Queensland Toowoomba, Somerville House Brisbane, and the Cite International des Artes, Paris. He has won numerous Australian printmaking awards including the Mornington Print prize, the Henri Worland Memorial Art Award Warnambool and the prestigious Fremantle Print Prize.
Ron’s work is represented in most major Australian State galleries (museums) and the National Gallery of Australia.
