Jill Ricci’s one of a kind collages immediately stand out with their unique and playful shapes & figures. Looking a bit longer, you will discover there are hidden stories to be found in each one of them. She carefully unites fragments of pattern, American culture imagery, texture and colour, and transforms them into beautiful and exciting artworks.
“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.”
Once again, Jill’s work is a perfect example of the kind of art that gets you lost in thoughts for a long time. I love when that happens! Her works are exhibited in galleries throughout the US and there is many more beauty to be found on her website.
