Elizabeth Magill in-conversation with William Feaver
Elizabeth Magill's main preoccupation has been with painting and in particular with reference to landscape. She uses this genre to explore possibilities within the painting process, playing with notions around constructed worlds and place. These works often evoke a sense of vastness but are underpinned with suggestions to the interconnectedness of things.
