Gallery Room 3 – Over £2000
Working predominantly in oils and acrylics, Jacob Gourley is a Liverpool-based painter whose practice explores the boundaries between realism and abstraction. Forming the bedrock of Jacob’s practice is the awareness of the central roles that the formal qualities play, such as shape, tone, edges, colour, and composition. His interest in the materiality of painting drives his practice in making work that integrates a range of painterly techniques into a single piece.
