Edinburgh Printmakers presents a selection of prints by artist member Gill Tyson, in our shop.
Gill Tyson trained at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art, where she graduated with an MA in Fine Art. In 2012 she was one of the artists representing Britain in The International Print Exhibition in Kyoto, Japan. She is a former Chairman of Edinburgh Printmakers and is currently an EP studio member. Her work is included in several public collections.
Tyson specialises in lithography, a printmaking process that combines direct and expressive mark making with deliberate and aforethought building of layers. In cool, atmospheric colours the artist explores remote landscapes. Her ever-present brushstrokes indicate a distilled image; an abstracted world that only hints at a human presence.
