Madge Gill By Myrninerest
|Publisher||Rough Trade Books|
‘Myrninerest’, a stunning new monograph on the visionary English outsider artist Madge Gill, is published in conjunction with an exhibition of her work at the William Morris Gallery in London. With selections from a seemingly endless body of work, it explores the natural creativity Gill possessed. She often attributed her inspiration for the thousands of intricate ink drawings and embroideries to her ethereal guide, after which this book is named. Gill was obsessed with spiritualism, and this unseen force gave her a new outlook and energy which shaped her work, guiding her hand and allowing her to find the strength and inspiration to take control over the many hardships in her life.
