British painter Gill Button conveys the fascinating beauty of life in oil paintings, watercolours and ink drawings. Equally passionately capturing a look on someone’s face, a mood, an attitude or the simple poesy of a faraway landscape, she translates intuitive thoughts into works of art.
'From Iceland to Lalaland', her first solo show at Âme Nue, invites us to contemplate an adventurous story of the imaginary. A narrative exhibition to be experienced as a ballade through landscapes and portraits, including intimate views inside her travel sketchbooks. Opening with a colourful journey through souvenirs of people and places, toward an atmosphere of secrecy, a black and white portrait gallery, the viewer walks through Gill Button’s moments of life, thoughts, and emotions.
