Lily Glover-Wright Fine Artist

I am currently studying for my final year of my Fine Art degree.
This blog shows my experimentation, and development as an artist with progressive photographs documented from my studio.
I work predominantly as a painter.
Please feel free to contact me for further information regarding my practice!
I decided to hang the ‘Blue Series’ on a lone wall because the bright, electric colours need space so as not to clash with other artist’s work.
I therefore hung this series first, and am happy with how it is presented on the wall. 
I was lucky to be given a space to exhibit with plenty of light, which really sets off the tones of the painting, and gives visitors plenty of room to step back and appreciate the series as one complete painting.

Starting to put the degree show together…

I measured out a grid on the wall to ascertain how far apart each painting needed to be. This proved far more complicated than I imagined, however, and required a lot of tweaking which seemed to work best by eye! Armed with a level, hammer, tacks and a pencil I managed to adjust each painting to make a straight row and worked across from right to left to ensure everything was evenly spaced.

Thankfully by the time I got to hanging the second set of paintings I was accustomed to the method of hanging ‘floating’ frames and the invisible mirror plates were no longer a hindrance. Fingers crossed it all measures up right!

My first set of business cards has arrived, in time for the Degree Show!

I decided to make a two orders of different paintings to provide some variation. The other design is taken from the Green Series, so viewer’s can make a preference.

I wanted the cards to reflect the bright, playful nature of my practice so used typography that I feel best represented this.

I completed this in a couple of hours at most, it was a sketch of sorts to try out more illustrative ideas.
Oil paint on photo-print.

Clearing out the studio is so depressing! Can’t believe how fast three years has gone.
