Signed on Verso
London based painter Gill Button is known for her captivating translation of found imagery; creating gestural, intimate portraits that are deeply personal and intuitive. Capturing moments of wonder, melancholy, strength or vulnerability, Button’s practice makes us question how we connect to each other, but ultimately to ourselves. Her larger canvases, often cinematic in nature, depict moments of contemplation; evocative of distant dreams, fears or memories.
Recent solo shows include Traces of You, James Freeman Gallery, London; Han Feng Art Space, Shanghai; Edge of Time, Unit London; From Iceland to Lalaland, Ame Nue, Hamburg. With recent group exhibitions in Tokyo, LA, Madrid, Paris, Berlin. A graduate of Kingston College of Art London, Button has been a judge and curator for the Ing Discerning Eye exhibition, spoken on several panel discussions, and given masterclasses in painting, Soho House.
