Gilbert works mainly in oils on both landscapes and abstract compositions, sometimes using gold or silver leaf. Gilbert's view is that the disparate styles of his paintings reflect who and where he is. The New Forest, Gilbert's home, is a major inspiration: 'I would be a fool not to use the ever changing colours that the seasons bring. Sunlight through the trees, early morning mists across the river, a bluebell wood right on my doorstep, how could I NOT paint this?'.
Gilbert's paintings and drawings can be found in numerous private collections, including:
- The de Sigley collection
- The Burtwell-Clark collection
- The Jervis Reed collection
