British artist Gilly Beal explores the omnipresence of the line, and linear patterns generally, in both nature and the built environment — cities, urban landscapes, gardens and parks. Pared down to its essentials, Gilly’s work is a study of the line and how it might be represented and recreated in artworks, using different mark-making techniques and media.

She investigates the boundary between painting and drawing, between the intended and the accidental, and between a drawn or painted image and a filmed one.
