Libbi Gooch

Libbi Gooch is self taught so her work is a very personal and instinctive response to the power of nature and the environment, the subsequent feelings evoked and the lingering memories. She works to music which sets the tempo for the way she paints, confidently using tools including brushes, palette knives, fingers and rags. She regularly exhibits her work in London and at galleries throughout the UK. In 2012 she had two paintings accepted for the prestigious Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, both of which were snapped up on the first night.

“My work is less about reality and more about the remembered or imagined. It is an impression of the environment based on the emotion that the memory of being there conjures up. I work with immense energy and a sense of immediacy to try and commit those fleeting impressions to canvas. What really excites me is capturing light and the mood it conveys. The limitless light of late summer and autumn or the intense/foreboding light of a winter’s day when you can feel the sun struggle to break through the storm clouds.” Libbi Gooch
