Time

Artists

Gill Allderman

These artworks were completed in Paris during an art residency at the International Cité des Arts. The 37
Parisian bridges, each with their own character, history, defining lines and structure, dominate the city. Jill painted 27 of the bridges. The artist suggests a parallel between history, freedom of movement and the beauty of Paris in a contemporary style. She aimed to create an ‘almost silk screen look of the 70s to capture the essence of each bridge using pre-digital, an old school-style stencil, for lettering the names of the bridges, and dynamic colour.’
