Based in Herefordshire, Siwan Gillick explores the borderland landscape of Wales and England. "My paintings use abstraction as a method and landscape experience as a source. I never set out knowing what the finished piece will ever look like; that is not the point. I have to ‘find’ the painting through the processes of mark making and the layering and removing of paint." "Maybe no picture can capture what I comprehend of the landscape but, as a painter, I endeavour to try. I do this by finding and controlling a pictorial space; something that translates and expresses a truth about the underlying pattern of things"
