‘Paintings That Paint Themselves’: Gail Troth Comes to Nottingham


A NOTTINGHAM art gallery is set to display work from an artist renowned for her unusual technique that produces works that literally ‘paint themselves’.

From Saturday 29 March, George Thornton Art in the Flying Horse Walk will be displaying a series of paintings and pieces by celebrated artist Gail Troth, who produces cityscapes and figurative works using a drip paint technique.

Gail Troth is an experimental artist whose work has been displayed around the world in countries including the UK, Australia, and Italy. Her work often depicts portraits of animals and landscapes – with surprising and aesthetically pleasing effects.

George Thornton, of George Thornton Art, said: “Gail’s technique is truly original and fascinating. She constructs her paintings using a drip paint technique – she drops paint onto a fluid canvas, which forms concentric circles as it hits the surface.

“As the paintings dry, they create a delicate pattern beyond manual dexterity, and have an intriguing effect on the canvas. Gail is pushing the boundaries of exploratory art and her work is a real science. It’s a rare treat to see this work first hand and it’s a real pleasure to be displaying her work in my gallery.”

The exhibition runs from 29 March to 5 April, and Gail Troth herself will be in the gallery on Saturday 29 March from 1-4pm to discuss her work, techniques, and inspiration with the city’s art lovers.
