Welcome to the Paisley Pedlar blog. My name is Gillian and I am an Artist, Curator and Researcher. I have a degree in Fine Art from UCA, Farnham, Surrey and my work embraces a range of mediums the end result reflecting my personal interests.
“The process of production is important to me, the working up of many stages or layers often using a variety of mediums is like life itself, such that an obvious aesthetic often masks a complex underpinning. Anonymous, intimate and disconnected the imagery meaning is ‘slippery’ playing with the imagination of the viewer.”
“Nature is beautiful in that it appears to say more than it is… artworks become artworks in the production of this ‘more’.” Theodor Adorno, Aesthetic Theory.
I exhibit my work regularly throughout the South East of England. You can see some recent examples of my work on the page called Artwork; but please don’t copy or share my work without asking first.
I love visiting different places and exhibitions and particularly the small local fetes and fairs, many of these finding their way on to this blog as a write up or review. I like to share these things because I feel that if I have liked it, someone else will too!
