Jamieson & Gordon have created public and socially engaged art installations in the UK and abroad.
Susheila Jamieson is a professional sculptor/arts educator, and James Gordon, landscape designer and a sculptor, deals with installation and with broader aspects of our work including structural drawings, landscape design and planning applications when required.
‘Our work is abstract and our practice has been very much influenced by aspects of the natural world and the wider landscape. Recent commissions included work for Sustrans, The Stove Network in Dumfries and various housing associations. We produce commissioned artworks in response to a client’s brief. We enjoy working with developers and are used to working within budget and time constraints.
Artworks have included interpretive reliefs, free standing totems, functional furniture, abstract sculpture, mosaic panels, steel screens and an earthwork.
Developing artwork has almost always involved, in various ways, community or other stake holder groups. We are used to and enjoy running workshops for varied groups including schools and adults.
We have used materials that enhance or reflect the environment including corten steel, green oak, stone, Caithness slab, ceramic, bronze and glass. Common to all our work is that it is site specific, and intended for outdoors. It is durable, low maintenance and vandal proof – with a minimum life of 20 years. Our material of choice is stone, and in Edinburgh this would probably be whinstone, or sandstone and potentially granite as well. If materials can be used from a recycled source we would certainly consider this.’
