Shona McQuillan is a self-taught artist who works from her her home studio in Stirchley. Working predominantly in oil, her figurative work explores a sense of loss of control, helplessness, vulnerability and power struggles.

Les Dames is a selection of work created within the past two years. The female figures depicted provide a vessel to not only explore the delicacy of form and hidden structure, but the idea of suspension or reiteration of time and place. McQuillan's ladies have an air of quietude and unapologetic femininity combined with either strength or susceptibility.

McQuillan is inspired by a gamut of creative souls who share her love of the human figure, from photographers Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin to painters Shawn Barber, Jeremy Mann, Lucian Freud and Jenny Saville. She continues to develop her practice, striving to explore new ways of working with paint and the human condition.
