Shauna McMullan

Commissioned Artist 

I am a visual artist living and working in Glasgow.  I have shown work nationally and internationally at major museums and galleries as well as through public commissions.  Artist Residencies have been important to how I develop work and these have taken me to many different places for e.g. The British School at Rome, the Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art in the Faroe Islands, the Triangle Artist workshop in Karachi, Pakistan and now the Albert Drive Artist Residency, Glasgow.

I’m interested in collections and in finding interesting visual ways of representing methods of inclusion and engagement with a diversity of people.

Maps and mapping have always been central to what I do and projects such as The Blue Spine Collection for Glasgow Women’s Library, Travelling the Distance for The Scottish Parliament and Via for the Toyota Museum of Modern Art, Japan extend this interest by creating artworks that, although aren’t specifically about mapping the physical earth, are instead concerned with charting our relatedness and connectivity to one another.

I also teach part-time in the Sculpture and Environmental Art Department at Glasgow School of Art.
