Maggie Royle is a painter based in Bristol, UK. Royle takes an experimental approach to painting with a particular interest in exploring relationships between abstraction and figuration. Recent paintings (exhibited at That Art Gallery, Bristol) play with a ‘DIY’ aesthetic, alluding to masking tape used in the making of the work, while playing with different kinds of space in the painting.
Royle has exhibited widely; recent exhibitions include ‘Living On A See-Saw’ (solo), That Art Gallery, Bristol; Winter Group Show, Linden Hall Studio, Deal, Kent (2020 and 2021); Sunday Times Watercolour Exhibition, Willis Museum and Sainsbury Gallery, Basingstoke (2020); Creekside Open, A.P.T.
