Saturation: the everyday transformed

Artist Profile

Audrey Gillespie

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.
