A passion for wild landscapes sees Lily Rigby creating mystical, deep and turbulent depictions of land and sea.

Since graduating with a First Class Degree in Illustration, from the University of West of England, Rigby has returned to her love for painting. Most often taking the form of large scale works in oil, her paintings are inspired by both the landscapes the surround her and those which have left permanent traces in her memory. Her practice sees her forming layers of paint on the canvas, scraping back and building up many times over to create depth and texture. This motion helps the artist to develop journey of the work, and allows her to feel and reflect the mood and atmosphere of the place she is describing in paint.

Based in Brighton, UK, Rigby’s work has been exhibited in Bristol and across West Sussex. She is currently creating work for two solo shows this year.
