A stunning series of original oil paintings by artist Gil Mutch, inspired by coastal scenes in Norfolk. Gil maintains a quality and consistency across a body of work, painting in an identifiable and distinctive style and a variety of subject matter (landscapes, still life studies and portraits). Her starting point for a picture is always an experience - vivid, but sometimes quite fleeting. Repeated layers and textures are built up in Gil's intriguing work, frequently returning to a painting, over a very long period of time, before the piece is complete.
"When we stand in front in front of the resulting picture we are immediately caught up in it's world, sharing her excitement in making the huge brush-marks with their luscious colour to create a dynamic journey across the canvas. We also sense the evolution of the picture, with layers of paint from many previous states clearly visible". Graham Miles. The John Russell Gallery.
