Contemporary Art Practice
Scottishness’, humour, dialect and nostalgia are the most prominent themes that run throughout Shannon Maclean’s work. She creates her work through gathering different perspectives of what reminds people of home. She explores the notion of the ‘labour of love’ through her use of embroidery and combines it with local dialect and anecdotes, reflecting on working-class life of growing up in Scotland.
By creating this body of work, Maclean intends to show the bitter sweetness of growing up in a working-class community, where it is seen that you have to have a thick skin to survive, but in reality there is a much bigger culture of humour and love that needs to be celebrated and shared.
