Siobhan McLaughlin

Siobhan McLaughlin is an artist and freelance curator based in Glasgow. Her art practice combines personal experience of walking with sustainable devices, such as sewing remnant materials, to create non-traditional landscape paintings. Through drawing, printmaking, painting and installation she explores themes of place, memory, sustainability and ecology.

Recent exhibitions include Elemental, The Royal Scottish Academy Edinburgh (2023); Coast to Coast, 108 Fine Art Harrogate (2023); HERE Between you and the World, POP Griffiths Gallery Brisbane (2022); the Gilchrist-Fisher Award, Rebecca Hossack Gallery London (2022) and July Exhibition, Arusha Gallery Edinburgh (2019).

Alongside exhibiting regularly, McLaughlin’s curatorial practice focuses on creating opportunities for sharing and opening up private, inaccessible spaces to the public. In 2022 she curated a major private collections exhibition, Alan Davie: Beginning of a Far-off World, at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, and more recently Scottish Landscapes: A New Generation, showcasing the work of 10 recent graduates from Scottish art schools.

Siobhan completed her MA Fine Art at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art in 2019. Since then she has been awarded the SSA Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Award, the Visual Art Scotland Cornwall Exchange Residency and the Stephen Palmer Travel Award.
