Artist Siobhan McLaughlin (b.1994), graduated in 2019 with First Class MA (Hons) in Fine Art at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art. She is based in Glasgow and currently represented by Arusha Gallery, Dundas Street, Edinburgh. In December 2019, Siobhan was the first recipient of the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Award, for her work Untitled (Lochnagar III) presented at the Visual Arts Scotland + Society of Scottish Artists exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy of Arts, Edinburgh.
As well as exhibiting regularly, she is currently curating an anniversary exhibition of Alan Davie’s work in collaboration with Dovecot Studios, and is Arts Editor for a publication of W Gordon and Jay Smith’s Scottish art collection.
Her practice sits between abstracted landscape and an expanded form of painting. Firmly situated in the history of experiential landscape painting, she combines personal experience with compositional devices, such as the use of alternative materials, to create a non-traditional depiction of landscape.
