‘Untitled’ Concept  

The Architects Thomas Arnold and Birgit Klauck designed a holiday home for the coastal town of Rugen on the Baltic Sea in Germany. The house was built in 2023 and completed in December 2023. In October 2022 T. Arnold contacted me to discuss installing an artwork in the house or it’s surrounding garden area. After a long conversation it was decided to create two artworks in the form of two walls between the upstairs bedrooms and their en-suites. The Artworks were made from specifically designed polyester resin and encased objects and fabric. T. Arnold and B. Klauck gave me some topics of inspiration for the artwork. From these I focused on the following: 

The Amber room – The red and orange tones and carvings that depict stories and culture 

Travel – T. Arnold, B. Klauck and their family traveled the world on their boat and collected objects and memories along the way that have been incorporated into the final design. 

Colour – to depict the ocean and the sky – T. Arnold and B. Klauck shared with me a painting that was personal to them and their family, this was a reference image when creating the colour layers in the artwork.

Native Voyage 2022

This month Louise Gibson installed a permanent commission for The Grove Hotel in Watford. The project was a private commission that was realised in collaboration with  Polynt composites a global resin Manufacturer. The piece is cross sections of a ejection seat parachute cast in polyester resin. The resin has been specifically designed by the artist for this project. The colours are created through chemical reactions that occur when formulating the resin using carbons and oxycures. These additives are ordinarily used to configure resins for various industries to manufacture goods. The piece is on display within the Hotel grounds and is open for all to visit when using the prestigious Golf club or by appointment. 

New studio

Louise recently moved into a new studio www.edinburghsculpture.org


Louise is currently working between Glasgow and Edinburgh on a large scale commission for The Grove Hotel and on a public art commission for ‘Safari of Sorts’ a new sculpture trail with LTD INK corporation. She is also making new work in the studio. Exhibitions will be announced later this year.


Nicola sturgeon visits the studio for SCAN’s (Scottish Contemporary Art Network) A current Art in Action campaign that aims to champion the value and importance of the arts. The campaign encourages arts organisations, initiatives, professionals etc to invite their local MSP to their site or space in order to see what’s going on in their constituency and see the positive impact of it.

2018/19 A Pallet of Polyesters

Gibson has a base in a satellite lab at ASCUS Art and science (Edinburgh) where she is working on a long term research project with polynt composites. The research focuses on creating a pallet of diverse polyester resin colours, solely from chemical reactions. it explores different processes during casting, which might create exciting new opportunities for both art and plastics production. She is using some products created through the research for the first time this year for a public artwork commissioned for the grounds of The Grove Hotel in Watford. The finished sculpture is due for completion in June 2019.
