Carol Gill

I live and work at Lyrebird Gully Studio in Webbs Creek NSW where I am surrounded by the natural beauty of the glorious Hawkesbury sandstone escarpments and its deep serpentine rivers.

I studied Fine Arts at Hornsby and Graphic Design at Randwick TAFE colleges in the 70’s. Inspired by the posters of the Post Impressionists era and the classical ink drawings of Asia I developed my love for drawing and making gestural marks.

I began my art career as a Graphic Designer spending my early years in advertising. Developing my art practice in this era meant the icons of the 70s-80s like Brett Whitely, Ken Done and Jenny Kee also heavily influenced my graphic view of the world. I enjoyed the simplicity of their shapes and bold panels of colour and the idea that they had just dashed something onto paper with their brush. In later years I rediscovered my art through workshops and further study where I was introduced to mixed media and collage.

I have been a keen bushwalker and take great pleasure in being outside. I always take inspiration from the natural landscape and in turn these later become my bodies of works. Using photography and creating graphite or gouache field sketches as a foundation, I collect my ideas outdoors and then transform them into vibrant and dynamic artworks in my studio.

I use a wide range of traditional Korean mulberry papers or “hanji”, tissue papers, water colours and gouache and love the way they respond and react with one another. I am enthralled by the textures and organic materials of the hanji papers and their relationship to the natural landscape from which they have been sourced. I enjoy bringing the beautifully delicate yet strong qualities of hanji to a very contemporary Australian theme.
