Gaia Ozwyn is a London based contemporary abstract oil painter. Born in 1991, she was raised in Devon, in the southwest of England, to a British mother and Jamaican Father. From her early years Gaia showed a strong affinity to the arts, with dance and visual art being a prominent part of her life.
Gaia’s work has developed from representational to abstraction, focusing on the concept of duality through her process-driven work. She takes inspiration from the landscape of her surroundings in her formative years, notably the natural geological formations found in the Dartmoor National Park; the unique duality between beauty and harshness, clarity and obscurity, demonstrated by the rapid transition in weather conditions and the distinct feeling of aloneness with nature.
Alongside her artistic endeavours, Gaia was trained as a biomedical scientist, after which she undertook a medical degree in London and is now working as a doctor in the NHS. The relationship and conflicts between art and science can be seen throughout her work, with incorporation of concrete whilst maintaining a distinct calmness through the tonality and composition of the work.
