Aimee Gillen. Constructing Unbelievable Color

Aimee Gillen’s highly sophisticated acrylic and glass pieces meld organic forms with unbelievable color. Her works are sensual two-dimensional pieces painted on canvases several feet across.

Because her materials can be alternately very thin or thick, Gillen is able to express a physicality that can change in dynamic several times over the course of one piece. The pieces are largely abstract, with some series featuring stylized figures. Many contain tantalizing hints of recognizable organic or human forms. But mainly the work is about rich, almost impossible color and complex organization. Gillen practically constructs her compositions, they are so layered; her shapes surround, envelop, and fold in on each other, taking unanticipated turns and hanging element on top of element. The movements are fragile and robust in turn. The palette is ambitious in its extent and simply incredible in its richness and capacity for reflecting and refracting light.

Gillen was born in London, England but moved to Ireland at a young age, where she has since mounted several exhibitions. She currently lives in Dublin.
