ABOUT THE TUTOR
Gail Astbury has a B.A. (Hons) Fine Art Painting from Wimbledon UAL and has gained an MA in Contemporary Arts Practice from Goldsmiths University and Tate Galleries. Her work has featured in many prominent locations such as London’s Trafalgar Square, the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Academy and she has works held in the collection of the MMSU Museum of Modern Art in Croatia.
Gail paints in her studios in London and La Péruse, southwest France. She starts her paintings with her immediate surroundings and takes photos and makes sketches to gather a visual library to use as reference points. Then she plays with the imagery and uses scale, colour, edits and zoom to select and highlight interesting focal points. She uses a range of techniques from renaissance lighting and brushwork to the colour and decorative compositions of 20th century modernism through to contemporary mass media image making and production. The resulting paintings are celebratory, they tell visual tales and proclaim societal hopes and fears.
