Gill Ayre is a painter working primarily with oils on canvas. Her work is an emotional and contemplative response to landscape, and is primarily process driven, allowing a semblance of landscape to emerge out of semi translucent layers of loose paint, partially revealing, partially obscuring what came before. The viewer is therefore encouraged to a personal response; a recognition not of specific place but rather of an emotion, atmosphere or mood relating to place.
Gill Ayre has been a practicing artist since graduating with First Class Honours in Fine Art from the University of Bedfordshire in 2010, after which she secured a 5 year Fellowship with Digswell Arts. Gill has exhibited in Hertfordshire and London with galleries and through group exhibitions. Gill exhibited at Art Fair East 2015 as one of Digswell Artists group.
