SELECTED WORKS 2018-2019
Found images and objects function as signifiers of both individual and collective experience. By incorporating materials that are linked to the realities of daily life, I strive to establish an immediate identification between the viewer and the work of art. I am exploring the place between “high art” and popular culture, text and image, figuration and abstraction, past and present , and two and three-dimensional space.
I begin working without a final vision in mind: I use collected materials and allow pattern, texture, color and structure to emerge organically. In this current body of work, I want the pieces to evoke the walls of Morocco, a Renaissance Church, an old school NYC subway wall covered in advertisements, posters & graffiti, and a touch of Malibu Barbie, all simultaneously existing on one canvas.” -Jill Ricci
“There exists an obvious struggle between the natural world and that which we build and construct. Living in the modern world forces us to find a balance. Ricci’s work accomplishes just that: it’s at once elegant and gritty; urban and earthy. And the real treat of Jill’s pieces, is that each time you revist the piece, you will likely find something you had never noticed before.” – Emily Asher Neiman, Director Asher Neiman Gallery
Jill Ricci is also the co-director and co-owner of Parlor Gallery.
