Gail Brodholt Biography
Gail Brodholt is a leading contemporary painter and linocut printmaker, creating works with strong, vivid colours and bold structure. The London transport network is a key feature in the subject matter of her work, capturing a moment in time as commuters make their journeys through stations and the tube. She also depicts urban landscapes at varying times of day, with dramatic sunsets falling over buildings of the urban landscape. She uses both printmaking and painting techniques, and sometimes a combination of the two, as she has found that one of these practices can inform and enhance the other. However, she states that sometimes an idea will present itself as a more suitable subject for one or the other.
