Jillian carlock is a recent graduate of massachusetts college of art and design with a bfa in painting. her exuberant works are an ongoing visual investigation into pushing the limits so far that perhaps, they can be bent. Crossing the line of comfortability into a new form of visual excitement. inspiration is drawn from light and shadow effects on reflective surfaces, 80's & 90's design elements, artificial colors, synesthesia, modern architecture, flower arrangements, as well as her fascination with all things sweet. using irregular patterns and shapes coinciding with a familiar color palette throughout her body of work, she creates prismatic portholes into this Continuous, dramatic candy-coated realm. a brief distraction from reality that holds the viewer hostage like a guilty pleasure. alongside painting her more traditional canvas pieces, she is up for any customary challenge that there is to offer- from surfboards, cars, furniture, griptape, and murals as well as textile work.
