Biography

British painter + collage maker (PhD), and one of the few British artists to be selected for the Brooklyn Museum's artabase (New York). Gorrill's new work reappropriates and revives the art historical female form through paint; and imagery taken from popular culture, Instagram and adult magazines. The artist draws meaning from the barrage of images we are bombarded with in our daily existence, blending art history and the passage of time with the Urban and Contemporary Cool. Through activist painterly vandalism and re-drawing of the old masters, a series of new modern mistresses emerge.
