Maggie Royle is a painter based in Bristol, UK. She has a First Class Degree in Fine Art and Education from Bristol Polytechnic (1990) and an MFA in painting from Bath Spa University (2008). Royle takes an experimental approach to painting with a particular interest in exploring relationships between abstraction and figuration and an engagement with the visceral qualities of paint. Her work makes reference to a range of art historical and contemporary sources; recent work has been informed by visits to Mexico (both real and virtual). Her paintings are often exhibited as installation pieces. Exhibitions include ‘Unity in Diversity. Bristol and Tbilisi: 1988 -2018’ at Georgian National Museum, Tbilisi, Georgia (2018); Pavilion of Painting, Fringe Arts Bath (2018); The Bath Open Art Prize, Fringe Arts Bath (2018), ‘Pay and Display’, Centrespace, Bristol (2017), RWA Annual Open Exhibition, Bristol. Royle was a featured artist on Axisweb ‘Five2Watch, Painting, 2018’. Her work is in private and public collections in the UK and abroad.
