GILL GALLOWAY-WHITEHEAD

 

Gill has developed a method of working with fine gold and silver wire, which allows her to express herself much in the same way as she would when painting.

Different densities of wire can be manipulated to create surface changes in tone and texture.  Using the whiteness of fine silver in combination with the rich yellow of fine gold as well as the black through to grey of oxidisation gives a satisfying palette.

The wire strand in isolation is fragile but when fused into a mesh gains strength.  The contrast between the look of fragility and actual resilience plays with the perception when embodied in one piece of work.
