Alison Gilbert

Alison is a British contemporary abstract artist and painter, based in Somerset, England. With a degree in textile design, and many years of art making behind her, paintings are developed with a primary focus on colour, pattern and texture. She loves to explore ideas around visual contrasts and creates work that makes a bold visual statement from a distance, but also has richly layered surfaces full of depth and interest close to. Work is made intuitively, drawing on decades of visual memory. Inspiration can be a mood or feeling, a memory, a place, even a symbol or the power of a word or a phrase. This may sometimes be incorporated in the finished piece in the form of visible or abstracted text.
