These paintings from private collections show a range of Gina
Bold's work from the last two years and chart the transition
from the outer through the personal crisis of Hysterical
Shock to the inner world of imaginative transformation
through mythological imagery. She describes painting as an
emotional communication and "a passion that has taken
me on a journey that is starting to unlock the great mysteries
Gina Bold was born in London in 1959 and worked in the fashion

but wanted to paint for twenty years, before doing her first

at The First Stuckist International 2002, and then as a guest
artist in other Stuckist shows 2002-3 at Stuckism International,
The Princes Foundation and Wednesbury Museum. She now works
as an independent London artist.
