In the 1950s, Ayres was a pioneer of abstract painting, making work on a vast scale. She explored colour and space by pouring, dripping and staining paint onto the canvas. She was a leading figure in a generation of British artists who were responding to the latest international developments in Paris and New York, including the work of American Abstract Expressionists.

‘As a landscape painter, the transient effects of light in Nature are very alluring to me. The more I look and try to represent what I am experiencing, the more the landscape seems to become a symbol for other underlying stories.’
Before painting full-time, she worked as an Art & Design teacher in secondary schools, adult evening classes, and in the mental health sector. In addition to her painting practice, she sometimes works as a workshop leader, theatre set & costume designer, researcher for radio Arts programmes, and as an art director for TV.
Gigi works mainly in oil paint on canvas or board, and sometimes water-based media, concentrating on landscapes and still life subjects, working between her studio and ‘en plein air’.
Gigi currently divides her time between her studios at home in Wales and central France.
