Sue Loughlin takes a multidisciplinary approach to exploring the interplay of abstract forms, primarily through painting, sculpture and installation.
Since relocating to the North East of England in 2017, she has been motivated by the shifting political and socio-economic climate of the region. Broader issues of class and the impact of exploitative patriarchal structures often drive lines of enquiry and influence material choices.
Phenomenological methodologies inform her work and concepts of the immersive, haptic and abject are also of importance. Loughlin focus heavily upon materiality and is increasingly engaged with notions of the Anthropocene.
