Gillian Appleby is an emerging New Zealand artist, working with oil on board, and illustration with graphite.
Her work suggests mixtures of fact and fiction. Ongoing work seeks to create tensions between illustrative and material investigations around the figure, and identity using photographs sourced from everyday.
Previously Gillian lived in the United Kingdom and studied art part time in London through College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins. She holds a Bachelor of Art and Design from EIT, New Zealand and currently lives in Auckland.
