Gillian Carnegie
Gillian Carnegie often produces work in series. 'Mono' is one of a number of paintings showing informally arranged decaying flowers. Although Carnegie works with the traditional subjects of still life, the figure and landscape, she subtly attacks preconceptions about the medium of painting. Using a variety of styles, generally executed in dark, earthy tones, she creates an uneasy tension between subject matter and material, her brushstrokes both affirming and contradicting the images they depict.
