Gill uses art to explore things she finds hard to say out loud, or even to think. In doing so, she plays with the viewer. Is this text or not? Can you read it or not? Does it make sense – or not? Laying these questions over and into colour and texture, she aims to create images that are intriguing and a little challenging as well as pleasing.
Her professional life has revolved around language and, having spent some time trying to stay completely abstract in art, she’s stopped resisting and has found new joy in returning to words and language.
She is currently trying to work out how to spend more time on art and less on her laptop.
