GILLIAN ROBERTS


Gillian Roberts paints in oils in the English Impressionist tradition. Much of her work is done En Plein Air as she very much enjoys depicting the world around her from direct observation. Influences on her work range from the Post-Impressionists Vuillard and Bonnard to Bernard Dunstan, but each of her works is suffused by her own very personal vision. Gillian is an acute observer of scenes of everyday life, people simply going about their daily business. She has also made a speciality of classical musical groups, the harmonies of sound deftly matched to the harmonies of colour and brushwork. Her landscapes and urban scenes encourage us to look at the familiar with a fresh eye whilst her thoughtful still lifes beautifully capture the fall of light on different metallic surfaces. Group exhibitions include Walker Galleries 1996 to date, Greenhouse Gallery 2005, Great Yorkshire Artists, 2005, 2006 and Leeds Fine Art Club, 2006. Solo Shows include Walker Galleries in 2005, 2006 and 2008. Gillian has also exhibited with the New English Arts Club in 2006 and 2007 and with the Royal Society of British Artists in 2007 and 2008. She has been Artist in Residence at the Rydale Music Festival and The Northern Aldborough Music Festival. Commissions include: The Legal Procession in York, for the High Sheriff; Arthur Church, Chief Executive of PLM, Redfearn and numerous portraits in pastel.
