Printmaker and painter Jill Bray (b. 1936) has over the past four decades created an extensive and unique body of work, inspired by her abiding interest in the landscape. Bray studied art first at Bishop Otter College, Chichester and then at Southampton College of Art where she was influenced by the work of Peter Lanyon, Graham Sutherland, and Ivon Hitchens. Bray exhibited in numerous shows in the UK and overseas, was a member of Printmaker’s Council, and her work is in several public collections, yet she has remained overlooked compared to some of her contemporaries working in a similar vein, which this exhibition attempts to redress. 50 paintings, carborundum prints and collages produced between 1979 and 2019 will be on display.
