Gill Dove

Gillian Dove, after graduating from college in Bristol, has taught art whilst continuing with her career as a professional artist. Gill studied printmaking with Frank Connolly (born 1948) at the City Lit in London and completed a three-year research project ‘The Visual Paths to Literacy’ with the Tate Gallery in partnership with the Institute of Education, University of London. Another research project was with the Centre for Language in Primary Education and the London University ‘Boys on the Margin’ working frequently as a consultant concerned with enabling schools to improve their literacy through the arts. Gill Dove's work is a response to the breath-taking but fragile beauty of the land, attempting to reflect the dramatic environmental changes along our coast, employing a combination of fine art techniques, photography, and printmaking to capture the striking, fascinating consequence of the weather and light, to explore the ‘undiscovered country of the nearby'. Gill is a member of the South London Women Artists and exhibits widely in London including, as part of BBC 100 Women, with a group installation ‘Pillowtalk’; Colourswatch at Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch; Art Brixton and Camberwell Arts Festival. In Suffolk she has exhibited at the Aldeburgh Gallery; a two-person exhibition at The Church Hall, Southwold; ‘Phosphorescence’ with composer Roger Eno at St Andrews Church, Westhall and with group shows at The Cut Halesworth; Earsham Hall Art Gallery, Bungay; Blackthorpe Barn, Bury St Edmund's and Ferini Art Gallery, Pakefield, Lowestoft and with Suffolk Open Studios. She has also exhibited abroad at Hans Flaman Gallery, Eindhoven, Netherlands and Les Caves, Calais, France. Her work is included in private collections in Guadeloupe, Antigua, Paris, China and the Netherlands. Gill has contributed work to the 'Westhall Secret Postcard Auction' and 'Pakefield Postcard Auction' and runs day Art Workshops from her studio in Kessingland Lowestoft in North Suffolk.
