A journey through the beautiful work of celebrated, self-taught artist Madge Gill (1882-1961). Gill’s prolific work was born from a difficult life and the discovery of enduring inspiration from art, spirituality and nature.
Drawings, paintings, embroidery and archival material explore the struggles she faced and the moments of experimentation, joy and hope.
