Shirley Chubb’s work involves visual responses to heritage sites, archives and museum collections.
Her exhibitions Thinking Path and Pen Rest considered Charles Darwin’s synchronic approach to knowledge and prompted an interest in the mechanics of motion, with her current work focusing on how visual art might become an effective means to manifest the significance of walking through particular environments and landscapes.
Her work has been shown throughout the UK and is held in public and private collections.
Recent research has contributed to visual arts environments as well as to the fields of art & science, health & wellbeing, narrative research, photography and archive research and museum studies.
In May 2019 Shirley Chubb presented a paper titled Significant Walks : Aesthetic articulations of walking, data and place to the 32nd Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Medicine in Münster, Germany.
