What's On

86. Gillsart Studio-Gill Allsop

My artwork has concentrated on acrylic and pastel paintings, experimenting with the many possibilities such media have to offer.

For the majority of my life I have been interested in colour and texture. It first started with embroidery then in fabrics as a textile designer and finally in my paintings. Alongside this I have a fascination with the fluidity, interaction and effect between paint, water and various mediums and resists. I let my compositions evolve and captialise on unexpected happenings. Throughout the process there is a constant assessment and evaluation of these techniques and results.

Recent works have been shown in various exhibitions in the Manawatu, Central Hawkes Bay, Marlborough, Nelson and Wellington regions. I have been selected into the Peters Doig Marlborough art awards (2011/13/15), The Academy of Fine Arts (Wellington,2012) and the Impressions Art Awards (Nelson, 2014). I won Best Acrylic in show at the Paraparaumu Rotary Art Show in 2015.
