Gill Hugman Perkins

My art practice explores ideas of relationship between people and landscape, questioning perceptions of ancient objects from a distance. This relationship is considered in terms of their obscure meaning and the need to view them through frames of our own making. Working predominantly in paint but also print, photography and mixed media, my work also explores the interwoven relationship of people struggling to create a distance, and thereby enabling different frames of reference.

The Henge series of paintings incorporates temporal modalities that mark out the changing landscape within which the stones exist, impacting on the way we continue to view them.
