Artist Zoe Gibson leads an in-person drawing workshop at Cooper Gallery looking at drawing from memory to document recent and past events as a visual diary.

Participants will be invited to refer to moments which have stuck out to them to make quick and loose autobiographical drawings following the format of a childhood game Zoe played called Streaky Bacon.

Artist's Biography

Zoe Gibson is a multidisciplinary artist whose works primarily combine sculpture, filmmaking, installation, mural painting and drawing. She has a particular interest in exploring storytelling using colour and pattern to create a vivid alternate world. Her work walks the line between sweet and sinister, looking at domesticity, myth, grief, ritual and the magic of everyday moments. She draws inspiration from lots of areas. She is especially interested in folk art and the idea that not only should art be accessible for everyone but that it should be a deeply enmeshed part of everyday life and surroundings.

Zoe graduated from Fine Art at DJCAD in 2017. Her most recent project, ‘Daily Dance’, was a solo exhibition of new works at GENERATORprojects, Dundee, 2021.
