Gwenllian Spink is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose practice is rooted in the cultural Welsh landscapes of Wales. Predominantly sculptural, her work is materially led. Most recently, she has received funding from Arts Council Wales’ Llais y Lle fund to research and develop the creative use of the Welsh language within the communities of Dyffryn Nantlle (2023-24). Examples of recent group and solo exhibitions include Bwystfilo at Aberystwyth Arts Centre (2023); Chwa o Awyr Iach at Pontio, Bangor (2023); Dragon Vets at Fitzrovia Gallery, London (2022).

Recent commissions include Y Fenni Community Feast Commission by Peak Cymru (2023), Youth Grant Grow Wild by Kew Botanic Gardens (2022) and a commission by Natural Resources Wales to create a participatory sculpture highlighting the biodiversity present in the threatened ecosystems of Cors Caron, a raised bog in Ceredigion (2022). The installations currently exhibited at Cei Llechi have grown from a series of playful experimentations rooted in the artist's allotment in Dyffryn Nantlle, by approaching the plot as a sculptural sketchbook.
