About the artwork

This original one-off painting is based on a photo that Gillian took in Peru, looking down on a river where local women were sat on rocks by the river washing clothes in the water. The image is painted in acrylic on canvas with added mixed media elements to create rough textures. The multitude of shapes that make up the composition are brought to life with a warm blend of tones that reflect Gillian’s characteristic earthy palette. The box canvas is painted on the sides, signed by Gillian in the bottom-right hand corner and is ready to hang, being uniquely framed by being fixed onto a frame and mount without glass.

About The Artist

Gillian Hancey

Gillian Hancey is a Scottish artist who specialises in using an earthy palette to create paintings that are usually based on an image but have an abstract feel, with the subject matter often inspired by her travels around Latin America. Gillian has always really enjoyed drawing and painting as a hobby, and creating life-like portraits of people was her main interest for a long time. This really came to life when she spent a couple of years living in South America –she took thousands of photos of the many people and children she met and worked with, and continues to use these as inspiration and subject matter today.
