The Burning Hours pulls audiences into the wonder of Kushana Bush's labour and imagination. Bush is known for producing paintings with meticulously detailed compositions, multi-ethnic characters and open-ended narratives - elements that combine to create a unique visual language.

The Burning Hours focuses on works made between 2014-2016, showing audiences what happens when Bush pushes her compositional limits and uses the entire surface of the paper. Each surface is filled with references to illuminated manuscripts, Persian miniatures, European art history and the modern day. By blending the historical with the contemporary Bush explores what ritual and community might mean to us in the twenty-first century.
