Malcolm Gillespie ............

I have been an artist since I was about 5 years’ old. When I was about 12 years’ old I went to see The Horses Mouth at the cinema, the work of John Bratby has remained an inspiration.
On leaving school I studied design at Brighton Art College from 1960 to 1964 and left with the National Diploma in Design.
As a designer I have produced a variety of work over the years, the consistent customer for over 30 years’ has been the conservation profession.
Visual interest – the nude, bits of seaweed, old logs, plants, trees, stone, beach pebbles, animals that sit still, water, anything God created. More particularly the common factors, the shapes, the colours.

Gillian Flack - b Gallery

Painting has always been a large part of Gillian's life – although originally she trained and worked as an occupational therapist in London. Influenced through instruction by Edward Wesson and Oliver Warman, she exhibits regularly in London at the ROI as well as in the provinces – accepting commissions both in the UK and abroad. Gillian is a member of the Hertfordshire Visual Arts Forum, the Biggleswade Art Society and the Eagle Gallery in Bedford where she regularly exhibit.
Gillian's work is figurative and mainly landscapes. She works on site to capture the changing light and mood of the scene and is  inspired by the effects of light and the shapes that this creates on canvas. Much of her work is inspired by her surroundings in East Bedfordshire, but the opportunities presented by her frequent travels in Europe and beyond have given her the chance to adjust her palette and present the variations in light and topography so different from an English environment.
