‘Mona Lisa’ Joyce Gunn Cairns

”   I am seeking a connection with all sentient life in my work, whether it is wildlife or figurative, and I hope that at times my work conveys such connectedness.  Otherwise it has no meaning. ”   JGC

Joyce Gunn Cairns  is currently working towards three other exhibitions:   Skin Deep at the Royal College of Surgeons, focussing on facial deformity and plastic surgery;   The Citizens Theatre in Glasgow (as part of her ongoing commitment to drawing writers and actors);   and New College, Cambridge in Spring 2011, a solo show of figurative work on a literary theme.     She has been exhibiting regularly for over twenty years, at home and abroad.  She has works in major collections:  The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh City Council, and the Universities of Edinburgh, Cambridge, and Oxford.  A book about her and her work, “Unspoken Lines” , is available from The Henderson Gallery in Edinburgh.
