Gillian Garnica's work is about paring down line and form to a minimum in order to create a quiet yet powerful presence. Her background as a photographer informs her approach to printmaking as she seeks out chance compositions in the world, reducing structures to their most basic, as if discovering a found drawing. These spare compositions convey a repose from the noise and fast pace of contemporary life. The work is both the feel of the printed paper as an object and the small details within, asking to be looked at closer to notice subtle variations that add depth and character to the piece.
Gillian lives and works in Bristol and has a She has a First-Class Degree in Photography and a Masters in Multidisciplinary Printmaking.
