Maggie Royle

Maggie graduated from Bristol Polytechnic in 1990 with a first class B.Ed (Hons) degree in Fine Art. Her work explores the dichotomies that can occur in painting, for example, the tension between perfection and something flawed. There are elements that relate to the female figure as well as references to popular culture. The titles of her works are often taken from song lyrics, as music is an important influence to her.

Colour is a major theme for Maggie and her interest is in the unexpected and unusual juxtaposition of colour. 'It is important for the colour to achieve a luminosity which approaches the sublime.'

Maggie has exhibited widely since 1992 including solo exhibitions at Bristol Old Vic 1993 and Canalot Studios, London in 1992. In 2000 she was a prize winner at the Royal West of England Academy where she exhibits regularly in the annual Autumn Exhibitions. She is currently a candidate to become an RWA Academician.
