Role

Visiting Tutor

Ginny graduated from the University of Manchester with a BA (Hons) in History of Art and French in 2010. She joined the School’s Foundation Course in the same year, and completed two years of the Painting Course. She went on to gain her MFA in Fine Arts and Humanities at the University of Dundee in 2016, winning the Vanessa Bell Prize and the MFA Arts and Humanities Prize.

Ginny has taught drawing, painting and printmaking at the school since 2013, was artist in residence at Edinburgh Academy during 2013 to 2014, and has taught with the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Drawing School. Most recently, she was Foundation Year Programme Leader at the Sichuan Institute of Fine Arts, China, from 2018 to 2019.

Ginny’s art practice is concerned with language and the materiality of paint, ontological philosophies and the spaces in and around paintings. Her work seeks to stage new experiences of space, by pushing and pulling flat geometric patterns and shapes through depictions of her environment. The introduction of these varying signs, symbols, colours and languages open up a different dimension of shifting representations.
