  • Gillian Steel

    Autumn Residency 2013

    UK (Research and Development bursary).

    Gillian Steel initially graduated from Glasgow School of Art (Printed Textile Design) in 1986 and was then closely involved with the running of Transmission Gallery before going onto a Masters in Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2006. Steel’s practice is eclectic, comprising short films, animations, hand crafted objects, printing and drawing. The writing of abstract narrative threads is a deeply embedded aspect throughout. She often explores scientific themes, obliquely and playfully looking at how we position ourselves in relation to science as fact and certainty, as well as a mythological notion in our lives.
