Gill Tyson is a printmaker whose main practice is in lithography, concentrating on the richness of expressive marks within this medium. She develops her prints by building up layers of colour to create a depth and intensity in deceptively simple and distilled imagery. Gill is drawn to remote, often bleak and harsh environments – places as diverse as Orkney, The Lofoten Islands and the Namib Desert. She looks for incidents of manmade presence in places that are in some ways inhospitable.
Tyson trained at Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art, where she graduated with an MA in Fine Art. Her work is in many public collections including the Smithsonian Institution, Aberdeen Art Gallery and The Royal Bank of Scotland.
