Exhibition of paintings by Gil Mutch at Unit 24: 19 April – 31 May 2009
Having worked outside for many years Gil Mutch has developed a rapid painting style to convey the sensation and capture the memory of the experience, color texture and innovative use of the paint are very important in gaining this experience. Close inspection of her work will reveal many layers, some works taking up to ten years, some ‘happen’ relatively quickly, though much thought and pre sketches go into them.
Layers or strata, an indefinable looseness of flexibility of handling defines Gils work: her etching plates are pushed to their limits until, indeed, they become ‘Fragments’ suggestive of landscapes, using the physicality and evolution of the process to describe the journey.
