Charismatic combinations of artistry and experimentation

Gail Troth is a fascinating figure whose mesmerising images embrace our modern preoccupation with combining art, science and philosophy. Her interests range from art history to physics and these are reflected in her work.

Gail’s charismatic icons and atmospheric landscapes are unlike anything else on the contemporary scene. Each one has a huge dramatic impact when viewed from a distance, while closer examination reveals a whole world of creativity which has taken place under the surface, a smooth abstraction which is beautiful in its own right. While many artists are defined by their distinctive brush work, Gail is defined by its complete absence, as she has developed a unique and striking technique.

Intrigued by the structures of life and the natural shapes of DNA which feed into the way things move and grow in the world, Gail makes her own paintings move and grow naturally on the page. She creates droplets which are distinct like cells, but then travel and bind to form the composition, giving artistic life to these concepts.

Gail was educated at the Dame Elizabeth Cadbury Art School, undertaking the BIAD Bournville Foundation Course Art & Design, then graduated from the University of Central England with a first class honours degree in fine art. Since then her work has been extensively exhibited across the UK and her impressive list of collectors ranges from actors and racing drivers to major corporations such as Direct Line and Ernst & Young. She has also received numerous awards including 1st Prize (St. Martin’s Art Commission), Silver Medal (Whitworth Wallace Painting Competition) and 1st Prize (Golley Slater Fine Art Award), and she has been widely featured in the media as a result.
