Louise Gibson (b.1985, Glasgow, Scotland) graduated from Edinburgh Collage of Art in 2009 and in 2013 relocated the studio to Berlin. In 2014 she was granted a long term private residency placement on a metal recycling yard on the outskirts of the city in Lichtenberg where one of her studios is based. Gibson is currently living in Glasgow where she is making a body of new work and pursuing a research project.
Gibson predominantly combines polyester resins with recycled fabrics, using various practical processes to complete work, sculpting casts at marble factories, moulding metals with onsite metal recycling machinery and lacquering art works at local car garages.
Group shows include: The Fall of The Rebel Angels 56th Venice Biennale 2015, and The Berlin Art Prize 2014.
Gibson has created public Art commissions for The Grove Hotel In London and interior structures such as a cast resin Elevator ceiling in collectors suite Smartloft Art and Apartments in Mitte Berlin.

Vibrant and visceral, curious and re-imagined, this large-scale exhibition is composed with materials collected from previous constructs from the city of Glasgow.
The artists have created a programme of workshops, live digital drawing, talks and discussion for all ages to get involved with. Their aim is to work individually and as a unit, utilising each other’s skillsets to create an energetic place for the public to engage with over the course of the festival.
The project has been made possible, and is supported by Glasgow the Caring City and Clockwise.
