The incredible mediumistic work of South East London born artist Madge Gill has a tantalising attention to detail. After a catalogue of tragedy in her personal life and after losing the use of her right eye, Madge started to write, draw and embroider. She mostly worked by oil lamp at night, and her interest in spiritualism greatly influenced her work which often featured ‘Myrninerest’ a spirit guide who she would set within a background of pattern and texture. After her death in 1961 her work was handed to East Ham County Council by her son as her most prolific period of work was produced whilst living in East Ham. These pieces have been resurrected and will be exhibited at the Julian Hartnoll Gallery, between 4th – 12th October 2013. See more of her work here.
