Tricia Gillman

Born 1951, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Tricia Gillman completed her education at the Universities of Leeds and Newcastle-upon-Tyne between 1970-77. She taught at Newcastle Polytechnic, the Lanchester Polytechnic in Coventry, and St Martin's School of Art in London. Since 1988 she has taught at the Royal College of Art. Gillman is a colourist whose work, by her own admission owes much to that of Braque, Matisse, Fra Angelico, Piero da Francesca and to Bellini. These influences have been analysed in an essay by Mel Gooding in the catalogue to the exhibition of her work organised by the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1989.
