Since her 2012 Masters in Fine Art, Jillian has developed a particular interest in the exchange between the personal and the systems within which we live. She is pre-occupied with the ambiguities of structure. Does it hold or trap? Contain or limit? If it is temporary, can it be stable? At what point does a reassuring structure become menacing and vice versa?
Jillian explores the principles of minimal aesthetic which seek a harmony of geometric order, while contesting their simplistic idealism by insisting on the ever-presence of memory and hand of the artist.
