British artist Virginia Bodman grew up on a Wiltshire farm and has since lived and worked all over the country, producing mostly abstract art. Virginia tends to work mainly with painting, but is also uses printmaking, video and photography. Her work is characterised by its provocative aesthetic style, with bright colours and ambiguous forms that are designed to spark debate and encourage interest in various social issues. Also fascinated by the history of art and the process of creating paintings, Virginia’s work is a study of the materiality of paint, and many of her oil paintings build up layers of paint to create intriguing forms and surfaces.
