Gill, Laura

Laura Gill Biography I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2011 with MA (Hons) Fine Art. This course was of particular interest to me as I was able to study History of Art at Edinburgh University, whilst completing the Painting and Drawing part of my degree at Edinburgh College of Art. Since leaving University I have been working from my studio at home as a professional artist. I frequently exhibit my work in galleries and also enjoy doing regular commissions. My paintings, drawings and digital images are concerned with the timeless quality of movement, primarily of the human figure. My aim is to simplify the figure so that it is neither male nor female, and allow the body to be represented as a microcosm of continually changing rhythmic forms. The repetitious shapes and patterns in my images illustrate the way movements made by the human body transcend time.
