The Art Show takes place in the beautiful Ayot St Lawrence “New Church,” a Grade I listed, Greek-style Church, (locally known as the Palladian Church), which is a work of art in itself.
Gill Ayre is a painter working primarily with oils on canvas. Her work is an emotional and contemplative response to landscape, and is primarily process driven, allowing a semblance of landscape to emerge out of semi translucent layers of loose paint, partially revealing, partially obscuring what came before. The viewer is therefore encouraged to a personal response; a recognition not of specific place but rather of an emotion, atmosphere or mood relating to place.
