A passion for wild landscapes sees Lily Rigby
creating mystical, deep and turbulent depictions of land and sea.
Most often taking the form of large scale works in oil; her paintings are inspired by both the landscapes that 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 the 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 new work for a solo show in Brighton this November
