Passages: Between Sea and Sky by Tricia Gillman

Passages: Between Sea and Sky by Tricia Gillman

Tricia Gillman's work concentrates on colour. She admits to influence by the French artists Braque and Matisse who were labelled as les fauves (wild beasts) after their brilliantly coloured and patterned paintings were shown at the Paris Salon of 1905. She also looks to the work of fifteenth century Italian artists such as Fra Angelico, Piero della Francesca and Bellini with its sense of arrangement of individual elements, often framed by architecture.

This work was presented to the University of Warwick by the Contemporary Art Society.
