Biography

Elizabeth Magill (born 1959 in Canada) is an Irish painter. She grew up in Northern Ireland and, having studied at the Belfast College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art, now lives and works in London.

Magill is a painter of prodigious versatility and inventiveness whose work has always drawn from a wide range of visual sources. While she often integrates photographic materials and processes into her painting in a number of novel ways, her primary focus has been the medium of painting, in all its bewildering variety. Lithography is one of Magill's preferred technique. In her painted works, she delicately imposes layer after layer of colour until the image takes on an ageless quality, as though coming to us from a distant past. Transforming the subject into the medium of lithograph gives the artist the chance to vary colour composition and texture to create new effects of mood and atmosphere.

Her first major solo exhibition was at the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, in 1990. In the same year, she was included in the 'British Art Show', which first introduced many of the most prominent younger British artists to a wider public.
