Sharon Quigley’s work balances community collaboration and engagement with self-directed studio practice. She has undertaken several artistic residencies and public art commissions as a professional artist. Her painting practice focuses on the body; its multitude of functions and its relationship with the material properties of paint. Quigley uses painting as a framework to explore the subjects of physicality, intimacy and sensation. Creating intricately patterned surfaces, fusing a myriad of cultural references from diagrammatic engravings, arabesques, micrographic reproductions and cellular structures, in an attempt to explore and reflect the correlation that exists between them all. Quigley is also an active member of the Scottish Society of Artists, serving as the Elected Vice President since 2013.
