Aimee Gillen is an artist living and working in the midlands of Ireland. After receiving a degree in fine art at The Crawford collage of art and design, she has exhibited widely from Milan to New York. Gillenʼs highly sophisticated acrylic and glass pieces meld organic forms with unbelievable colour. Her works are sensual two-dimensional pieces painted on canvases several feet across.
Aimee creates large abstract paintings. The work is about rich, almost impossible colour and complex organisation. Gillen practically constructs her compositions, they are so layered, her Shapes surround, envelop and fold in on each other, taking unanticipated turns and hanging element on top of element. The movements are fragile and robust in turn. The palate is ambitious in its extent and simply incredible in its richness and capacity for reflecting and refracting light
I Have a new collection of art work for The House Event which I'm looking forward to showcasing.
