Originally from Scotland and formerly a physicist, Angela Gilmour now lives and works as a visual artist in Cork, Ireland. She holds a Masters in Science and an Honours Degree in Physics from the University West of Scotland and an Honours Degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art and Design, Ireland.
Since working on her first class honours thesis Creating a Third Culture? Art and Science Interactions (2015), Gilmour has built a relationship with Science Institutes nationally and internationally. These ties lead to residencies and collaborations with researchers in Biotech, Nanotech, Food & Farming and Environmental Sciences. This resulted in interdisciplinary and socially engaging works for public libraries and outreach programs with Science Foundation Ireland, MDI Biological Laboratory America, International Space Week, British Science Week, the New York Hall of Science, the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Blackrock Castle Observatory, Munster Technological University, University College Cork, European Research Centre Tyndall National Institute and the Irish Photonics Integration Centre.
Gilmour has exhibited nationally and internationally with shows across Europe, America and Australia. Her work is represented in private and public collections including, the Office of Public Works for the Irish State Collection, University College Cork, Manly Art Gallery and Museum, Australia, New York Hall of Science, SciArt America, Tyndall National Institute and Irish Photonics Integration Centre.
