Madge Gill: Medium & Visionary catalogue from the recent exhbition at the Orleans House Gallery Oct 2013 to Jan 2014

With no training and no aspirations to fame, Madge Gill (1882 - 1961) produced many secretive ink drawings during her lifetime. Her work remains an enigma: is it true she was inspired by an ethereal spirit guide? Was she genuinely in touch with 'the beyond', or was art-making a form of self therapy?

Madge Gill (1882-1961) is undoubtedly one of the world's most highly regarded  Outsider artists. She is represented in all of the international outsider public collections including the Collection de L'art  Brut   Lausanne and the L'Aracine Collection at the Musee  d'Art  Moderne in Lille.

Roger Cardinal, who coined the term Outsider Art in 1972 and is the author of the seminal text by the same name writes in his latest biography 'The Life of Madge Gill':

"Gill’s frenetic improvizations have an almost hallucinatory quality, each surface being filled with checkerboard patterns that suggest giddy, quasi-architectural spaces. Afloat upon these swirling proliferations are the pale faces of discarnate and nameless women, sketched perfunctorily, albeit with an apparent concern for beauty, and with startled expressions."
