Gwen Fulton  Born  1948

Biography



Gwen Fulton was born in Edinburgh in 1948 and studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee, graduating in Illustration and Printmaking. After a successful spell as an illustrator in Scotland and England she spent nearly 10 years living and working in Canada and various parts of the United States including the Pacific Northwest and Boston Massachusetts.  Re-established back in the U.K., Gwen is now based in Surrey, England.

Gwen’s unique figurative paintings have encompassed a diverse range of subjects. Moving on from birds and plants in traditional landscapes, her current work combines the elements of imagined landscapes and mazes with exotic plants, animals and birds in order to create richly detailed oil paintings. These are full of colour, often with something of the surreal, conveying a sense of ambiguity and the unexpected.

Gwen exhibits with Portal Painters at The London Art Fair, Islington, The Affordable Art Fairs in Battersea (spring) and in Hampstead and at The 20/21 British Art Fair at the Royal College of Art.

The Ice House

Size: 48 x 58 cms ( 19 x 23 ins )
Type: oil on linen
Prices: : 1950 : 2516 : 2301
Description: 

Enlarging on the original meaning of an ice house here is an entire microcosm of snow, ice and frost, a self-contained world imprisoned within the confines of the ice house.. The snow leopard and rider look out, seemingly detached from the normal passage of time and with it, the passing of the seasons.

The iceberg marooned in a rural landscape echoes the predicament of polar bears we see trapped on shrinking ice floes. Here the last grasp of winter tenaciously holds on to its last foothold, protecting its inhabitants from an uncertain future.

Glass House

Size: 48 x 63 cms ( 19 x 25 ins )
Type: oil on linen
Prices: : 1900 : 2451 : 2242
Description: 

In several paintings I've used the construct of a glasshouse or a greenhouse to explore extremes of climate, contrasting landscapes and worlds within worlds. “The Glass House” is set in a peaceful and tranquil landscape where the overheated micro-climate of the glasshouse itself has gone into overdrive resulting in an extraordinary mix of plants, birds and insects.
