GEMMA BILLINGTON
'An Dúchas (Homeland)'
16 September - 31 October 2019
 

Gemma Billington was born in Killorglin, nestled between the Ring of Kerry and the Atlantic Way, Gemma spent her youth in Kerry before moving to England in her early twenties. She studied Sculpture at Newbury College of Art and did a degree in Visual Studies at Winchester School of Art where she specialised in painting. Now Gemma divides her time between painting studios in Kerry and Berkshire, and regularly attends life drawing at the Royal Academy of Arts in the famous Life Room created by Sir Joshua Reynolds, a unique space that helps nourish her artistic practice.

Her main inspiration comes from Nature and its ever changing patterns. She becomes particularly absorbed in the deathlessness and timelessness of Nature; this is intensified by her looking at the eternity of Nature through the flower, the ocean and the sky. To the viewer there may appear to be a subject and there is, but there is also something else going on.

She chooses not to use traditional brush strokes, but uses other means of applying paint, almost like a dance with raw, vibrant colours and immediacy of illustrative mark-marking. The more one looks at the painting, the more one will be drawn into the paint, and to the meaning of the eternity.
