Gillian Bestwick is one of a long history of artists who are profoundly inspired and moved by the beauty and intensity of the sun. Her paintings capture the power of colour and emotion a hot sun can create both physically and emotionally around and within us all. Gillian’s recent work falls into one of three categories; Paintings which are solely inspired by her deepest thoughts and feelings and are often abstract. Paintings which are inspired and document actual land and seascapes she visits and paintings which are a successful combination of the two. The work ‘Blue’ is a fantastic example of the latter.
