Originating from Scotland, Gibson graduated from Edinburgh Collage of Art in 2009 and in 2012 relocated the studio to Berlin. In 2016 Gibson returned to Scotland but was granted a private residency placement on a metal recycling yard on the outskirts of Berlin in Lichtenberg where she continued to work regularly until the end of 2017. Gibson lives in Glasgow and works between Glasgow and Edinburgh. She is dividing her time making public art, independently exhibiting and working in a satellite lab with ASCUS Art and science (Edinburgh) on a research project with polynt composites. 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.
Gibson’s practice and innovative work with resins is sponsored and supported by global resin manufacturer Polynt composites.
