JILLIAN EVELYN

Jillian Evelyn’s flat acrylic paintings combine graphic shapes, contorted forms and a narrow color palette to depict the female figure. The artist’s compositions are vignettes of quiet daily life—subtle scenes of presence and growth—that encourage the viewer to self-reflect. Creating unique contemporary narratives within the greater context of illustration, figuration and art history, Evelyn’s works explore the overarching struggles and social anxieties of women.
