George Gibson is a print-based artist who’s practice mostly exists within the pages of self-publishing and zines, collecting and archiving digital matter in print. George’s most current work looks at fan culture, exploring contrasting ideas of ‘the fanatic’, and playing with the concept of the fanzine. Revolving around one particular study into a science fiction memorabilia collector, the works focus on someone else’s fanaticism, rather than their own, taking a voyeuristic approach to fanzine making. Alongside their practice, George is 1/4 of Shy Bairns, a multi-disciplinary collective specialising in DIY arts publications and workshops. Shy Bairn’s publishing focuses on an interest in community, identity, Art World Politics and Real World Politics, and how print relates to all of these things.
