Rise / Set exhibition July 6-July 26, 2012

Nocturne, oil on canvas, 52"x52"

Rise / Set : Paintings by Jill Christian
Inspired by nuanced light and color in the moments surrounding dawn and dusk, the paintings in this exhibition present fields of brushstrokes that completely fill the canvas with subtly shifting colors.  Working within the structure of repetition and reduction, these process-driven, meditative paintings create rhythmic patterns that invite quiet contemplation of their surfaces.

Opening Reception:
Friday, July 6, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
(in conjunction with ArtsCrawl's First Fridays)

Exhibit Dates:
July 6, 2012 - July 26, 2012

Studio Work, June 1, 2012

This month I am working on a 52"x52" for an upcoming show at Harwood Art Center. This will be one of two large pieces that will hang on opposite sides of the gallery. The summer skies have been particularly colorful at dawn and sunset due to recent wildfires in New Mexico. The colors are seeping into my work -- heavy blues and vibrant oranges.
