Burdock's interests lie in observing emerging socio-political ideas as they manifest within pockets of society. Her drawings and paintings reference historical art and philosophy looking under the surface of social interaction where disparate knots and sporadic shoots of psychological intensity emerge through a collective consciousness, which are transported from person to person and group to group, finally creating wider culture. Research is based in the here and now, current affairs, the impact of religion and politics, these paintings and drawings have been selected for the New Contemporaries, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2020, to the BEEP International Contemporary 2020, the Royal Soc British artists, the Chaiya Art Awards, the Neo Art Prize - Bolton Museum, to the Wells Contemporary - Wells Cathedral, the Wales Contemporary and shows in New York.
