Artist Statement

Megan Queenan is a Glasgow-based multidisciplinary artist, her work articulates a diverse arsenal of skillsets combining printmaking, sculpture, and digital media to create visually dynamic installations that examine the human response to mortality.

Emerging from her education at The Glasgow School of Art with a bachelors in Painting and Printmaking she generates artwork which facilitates a space between the tangible and the intangible, looking towards the lifecycles of both the natural and the artificial to confront our attitudes towards our own mortality and inevitable transitions into the unknown.

 

Queenan’s work is driven by a desire for honesty and pushing the materials she uses to new limits by using unconventional methods of production.

Historical enquiry, conceptual investigations, and a strong understanding of aesthetics all combine in Queenan’s work to encourage important and open discussions surrounding death within a contemporary context.
