Jill Ricci, a New Jersey based artist I discovered through a fabulous Art Blogger girlfriend and contact her immediately. Jill Ricci’s works are SOOO New Orleans. Classy yet random. Classical, yet totally graffiti. I love the balance and the contrast which reminds me of our crazy city. Layers of time, decay and beauty.
To me her art speaks of a bohemian, gypsy dreamland displayed in a way that keeps you looking for more. I love how the patterns bring continuity and order to the randomness and layers. As she puts it “I want the pieces to evoke an old wall in Morocco, a Renaissance Church, a NYC subway wall and Malibu Barbie all simultaneously existing on one canvas.” I think she accomplishes just that.
Jill has a training that explains her eye for beauty and her skill at her craft. She studied Interior Design and Decorative Painting Finishes in Chicago. She hand beads all her wrks with archival materials and puts her Ricci magic into every unique piece she makes.
We are pleased to be Jill Ricci’s Southern representatives at Gallery Orange. Enjoy !!
