Gillian Theobald | #gilliantheobald

As though painted on glass, Gillian Theobald’s acrylics canvases and papers radiate gentle transparency. Their semi-abstract landscapes possess a certain fluidity, being subtly structured in imperceptible perspectival layers, where dreamy foliage emerges and disappears in slow motion. In a way, the meditative character of Theobald’s landscapes is reminiscent of a stroll through Japanese gardens. At the same time, Theobald employs expressive opaque colors, infusing her carefully balanced compositions with radiant vibrancy
