"Gill Ord’s work is committed to a restless curiosity. I am often most drawn to it because I don’t know what it is I’m looking at, so trying to hold it steady enough to write something down is at once tantalising and frustrating. Her paintings and drawings have a resistance about them. There’s some repetition and geometry, some scaffolding that we might hold onto but it doesn’t really stand up; there’s near imagery we might recognise but it remains just that – near, but not here......their elements combine only to conjure a world stirring."
