About the Artist
Gillian Murphy B.Des. MA Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1964. Based in Dublin, Gillian’s current work is a mixture of abstract and semi abstract compositions. Gillian paints in both acrylic and oils where both pallet knife and brush work result in a loose bold style. Her landscapes are strongly influenced by the area around the Burren in the West of Ireland and depict the mercurial nature of the light and the fickleness of the Irish weather, resulting in an ethereal combination of colours and textures. Her abstract pieces are currently experimenting with oil and cold wax allowing her to produce a history through multiple layers.
