Hilary Gauci’s finely executed still life works, focusing mainly on silver and pewter accompanied by fruits, cheese and nuts, are highly collectable. As a result she is much in demand and her paintings are exhibited in selected galleries across the country including London.
She says: ”I love painting still life using the vibrant colours of fruit and their reflections within silver, copper and pewter. I also paint game birds, eggs and feathers, and old books, parchment and globes. My work is done in oil on a fine linen surface. Over time I have distilled my work down to small, still life portraits influenced by the old Dutch masters and some exceptional modern day still life painters.”
Based in Aberdeenshire, Hilary Gauci exhibits regularly in the North East as well as throughout the UK. Her work features in numerous collections.
