New artist: Gillian Thompson
We’re excited to announce that a selection of beautiful prints by Gillian Thompson are now available at the gallery. More of Gillian’s work will be featuring in the next exhibition of contemporary prints at Quercus Gallery, which opens on Friday 3 October.
Gillian is a highly skilled print maker, living and working in Bristol. She is an Editioner at Spike Print Studio and works as a Technical Instructor in the print centre at the University of the West of England. She has won various print awards including BITE in 2012 and the Rebecca Smith Award in 2013.
Gillian’s painterly approach to printmaking focuses on intaglio processes. Printing on heavyweight handmade paper emphasises the tactility of the work, making the prints more akin to objects.
