Olivia Pilling is currently regarded as one of the UK’s most exciting young painters. She finds her inspiration in the rural landscape; her paintings of hills, valleys, mills and chimneys come together forming natural abstracted shapes and lines. Having recently moved from the rural setting of Todmorden to Manchester, her latest work references a move to an urban location. The elements of bright colours, dark contrasts, shadowy subject matter and loose technique come together to provide an end result of an image that rides a fine line between spontaneity, calculation and control. These paintings are both an expression and an impression of the subject. There is no doubt that Olivia Pilling’s work will grow in reputation and value making her debut on the ACHICA fine art platform a valuable opportunity to make a purchase.
