About the Artist

'Cartmill’s abstract paintings are characterised by their highly textured surfaces. He incorporates a variety of materials in each work, from paints and inks, to gesso and raw pigment, which are applied in numerous layers. Some coats are rubbed through to reveal former activity; other layers are completely concealed as painting progresses. He makes his own paints providing greater control over consistency and surface texture of a painting.'
