Statement

My artistic practice encompasses printmaking, painting, and installation. I am inclined toward the drawn or hand-formed because of the potential that this manner of recording and communicating has for revealing authorial subjectivities, rooted in the encounter between the inner and outer worlds in which we exist. My work grows out of an interest in how individuals, communities, organisations, and political bodies position themselves within our changing natural environments. It is informed by investigations into scientific thought and the disciplinary history of natural history, as well as by invented concepts such as ‘natural resources’, ‘exploration’, and ‘wilderness’.

Biography

Influenced by having lived and worked in Canada, Japan, France, and Scotland, Jodi Le Bigre works broadly across painting, printmaking, and installation. In addition to pursuing her own artistic practice, she is the Etching Technician at Edinburgh Printmakers and a Lithography Technician at the Glasgow School of Art. Her printmaking practice began at the Atelier de Belleville in Paris and was further developed across a number of Scottish print studios before she completed a Master’s degree in Fine Art Practice at the Glasgow School of Art. She has been invited on artist residencies in Italy, Belgium, France, Germany, and the UK, and has been awarded such prizes as the Royal Scottish Academy’s John Kinross Award and the Society of Scottish Artists’ Eichstätt Lithography Award. She regularly exhibits work in Scotland and internationally and her work is held in private and public collections, including Dumfries House, The Iraq National Library, and the Royal Scottish Academy.
