Encaustic/mixed media paintings
July Open Studios
Ideas of memory and relationship are explored in paintings, collage and the ancient process of wax encaustic. Collaged papers, prints and fabrics are used to describe favourite objects and encapsulated between multiple wax layers, leaving a smooth, lustrous sheen on the surface, a protective 'skin' to the outside world. Oil and acrylic paintings explore the relationship of objects or the memory of place, distilled through time, an evokation of the sensory experience.
..."Jill’s paintings succeed because they are about much more than process.... Her use of colour, pattern and different materials is confident, bold and somehow personal too. ....Each work feels special and distinct." Andrew Nairne, Director, Kettle's Yard Cambridge
