Highly tactile, Loughlin’s work focuses upon the physical qualities of materials. For the artist, process and interaction with surface are key.
Underpinning her work are concerns with the exploitation of both the planet and its inhabitants due to capitalist patriarchal structures.
Sue Loughlin is based in the North East of England and is a graduate of the BA (Hons) Fine Art course at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. She is currently a member of the Collective Studio at the Newbridge Project, Gateshead.
