About the Artist

Jill Simonsen renders scenes of isolation with a curious mix of excess and emptiness. Antennas fight for space on an undersized roof, ubiquitous powerlines crosshatch dusky pastel skies into plaid. In many of her works, a pale orb looks on blindly, an indistinguishable sun or moon, unblinking in the haze. Simonsen utilizes her graphic style and recognizable and inorganic imagery to create works that are both realistic and hopeful, as they attempt to understand the means by which people communicate and, despite these interactions, become isolated.

    Minimalist elements convey a world of meaning! Especially liked the 6th image!
