Gemma Anderson is a native of Belfast. She graduated with an MA in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art (RCA), London, in 2007, having already obtained a first-class honours degree in fine art. She was one of the stand-out artists in an RCA masters show described by Charles Saatchi as one of the best for years. She has exhibited in London, at the Courtauld Institute, the Whitecross Gallery, the Jerwood Space and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, as well as in Paris, Japan, Newfoundland, Belize, Venice and Belfast (at the Golden Thread Gallery).
She has been awarded a series of prestigious residencies, most recently in the Galapagos Islands. Work drawing on that trip is included in this exhibition, her first in Dublin. She has also collaborated with a forensic psychiatrist on a Wellcome Trust Arts Award project consisting of a series of portraits of psychiatrists and their patients. She is artist in residence at the Jerwood Foundation throughout 2010.
