About the Artist

Adele Gibson

Adele’s work is concerned with our environment and the part that we are playing in its alteration, that is the Anthropocene. She completed her MA in Fine Art at the University of Brighton in September 2017 and her paintings express my thoughts and emotions about the fragility of and risk to our natural world. Her paintings are made from her imagination and visual memory after making trips to explore the icy and glaciated landscapes of the far north.

In June 2018 she was  awarded a residency on a 3-masted sailing vessel making a journey to Svalbard. Another strand of her artistic practice is the creation of works on paper which use simple materials like carbon and graphite to make visible the natural processes of freezing, melting, sedimentation and surface tension. This work taps into her love of experimentation which stems from my science background.
