Paul Sloan (b. 1970) was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As a child he emigrated to South Australia, where he now resides. An interdisciplinary artist, Paul draws upon multiple landscapes—sonic, socio-political, historical, art historical— for inspiration. Paul Sloan explores the recurring themes of revolution, rebellion and colonisation through his practice. He explores these themes primarily through works in gouache on paper, oil on canvas, sculpture, sound and photography.
While on a three month long residency at Suomenlinna Island, Paul plans to explore the local landscape through the lens of photography.
