Caught my eye – Jill Ricci

I just couldn’t help sharing this…I came across JIll Ricci & immediately was captivated by her work. They sucked me in….big time.

I love  her composition of layers and colours, they evoke a contradictory and simultaneous  sense of realness and fantasy.

Jill Ricci is an artist from New Jersey – “One of the most arresting visuals for me is an old wall layered with papers, graffiti and text- our modern hieroglyphics. I try to re-create this beauty in my work, the layers of time and decay are what interest me. I hope that the person viewing my work will linger, trying to discover hidden imagery and text and depending on their life experience, find their own meaning or interpretation”


I can imagine this work sitting against an exposed brick wall in a New York loft apartment – it has a ‘globe trotter’ feel to it – the shapes take me back to Morrocco, the graffiti back to Berlin and the decorative paper to Vietnam – Ricci’s pieces can take you on an imaginative journey around the world.

Check out Jill’s work here – it is truly inspiring.
