Gillian Brownlow takes an intuitive and exploratory approach to the detail she observes in the world. As a Northern Irish artist the diverse landscape of the Island inspires her. Whilst constantly assessing connections between her practice and the world around her she aims to holistically inform her reflective artwork by exploring natural, physical and cultural aspects. She is a gatherer of found and inherited materials that provide inspiration. A prolific maker, her approach is visceral, responding to the developing story of her work. The result of this process is ultimately communicated to the viewer as they engage with the visual outcome. She experiments abstractly with colour which is an integral part of her work. Her love of fine art, the abstract, and all things textile offers her freedom to use whatever medium her current project demands.
