In this series, Gillian focuses on industrial sites where she can shoot rusted metal and distressed paint. She finds a fascination in documenting man-made materials, where once constructed, begin a never ending attempt to return to nature. She employs closely cropped images to remove any contextual reference, with the objective of creating a painterly, abstract effect.
In Gillian's "Wood" series, she visits industrial sites in search of weathered
wood and distressed paint, continuing her fascination in documenting man-made materials and their quest to return to nature. Her closely-cropped images uncover an abstract world of painterly images full of texture and colour.
