Irish artist Fion Gunn delves into the human experience in her work. With a portfolio that ranges from mixed media painting, to sculpture and installation, Fion’s art is a vast exploration of existence across time, subject and medium. Fion incorporates landscapes, urban motifs, figures and surrealist elements into her work, and in doing so the artist weaves continuous narratives that comment on so many different aspects of the human condition. Looking at both the past and the future, Fion seeks to create art that is inclusive and far-reaching, speaking to people from all walks of life.

Recent Work

In 2019, Fion’s solo show, ‘Young Gunn’ took place at Candid Arts Trust in London. The exhibition was curated by Emily de Wolfe Petit and showcased an extensive collection of her ongoing portfolio. The show exhibited Fion’s “Odyssey of human life” and reflected just how multi-faceted her style is. Combining seascapes and cityscapes, the rural and urban, the figurative and imagined, Fion explored a multitude of themes including migration, feminism and the relationship between the East and the West in the exhibition.
