Artist Residency: Shaina McCoy


The artist of the 2022 GDS Residency Programme is Shaina McCoy.


Shaina McCoy works from photographs to paint her family members in thick, expressive brushstrokes. While her source material is deeply personal, McCoy renders her subjects without faces, inviting her viewers to project themselves and their own relatives into her scenes.


Whilst in residence, Shaina will continue to develop a recent series of paintings which will be presented in her first solo exhibition at Galeria Duarte Sequeira in April 2022.
