Experimental contemporary Wye Valley based artist Gile's paintings explore the intricate details, patterns and shifting colours of his sea life subjects.
Inspired by the natural world he examines the hidden kingdoms of colour and texture found in nature’s close-up detail.
Originally from Yorkshire he studied fine art at Sheffield before moving to Exeter to study Illustration and Design. Now, he works predominantly in oils and his canvases take on other-worldly textures with the addition of acrylics, inks, spray paint, varnishes and anything else he can lay his hands on.
“I began looking closely at the shimmering colours [...] the perfect patterns nature creates [...] Blown up large you really see the wonder in these little creatures"
