In this video, Audrey Gillespie introduces us to her ‘This Hurts’ series, part of SATURATION: the everyday transformed at Crawford Art Gallery.
“This exhibition carries an array of emotive work as well as being rich in colour and conception – being close to my own work’s motives, I can imagine that this exhibition will highlight each artist’s integrity and style in all the best ways.”
Audrey Gillespie’s series 'This Hurts', part of SATURATION: the everyday transformed at Crawford Art Gallery, is a multimedia series that uses analogue images, painting and silkscreen printing to translate heavy emotions through colour-saturated images. Creating blurred lines between anxiety-fuelled dreams using experimental double exposures, hallucinogenic atmospheres, soft focus and deep tones fuse the subject and backdrop in Gillespie's images before whipping it back to sun-glazed scenes, settling into a fugue state.
Gillespie is an Irish fine artist from Derry, Northern Ireland. Currently living and creating in Belfast, her media include analogue photography, painting and printmaking. Gillespie explores themes of queerness, mortality and conflict with youth and anxiety in her current series 'This Hurts'.
