Gillian Carnegie’s paintings may seem conventional, but the skill employed to bring them to fruition is what is more remarkable. Mood and atmosphere are set by the painterly strokes and subdued tones that make up both the more representational pieces like the Cemetary Gate or some of the flowers, and those that are more abstractions. Some, such as Maison Merlin, lay in between. Of note amongst the subjects employed by Carnegie is the somewhat textbook range of topic (still life, landscape, nude, abstract, representational) that is unusual in its lack of surprises.
