Jillian Evelyn – Skinny Dippers
Jillian Evelyn is an artist originally from Michigan and now living in Los Angeles. Her paintings investigate the depths of awkwardness, discomfort, and contortion both from external expectations and within ones' own thoughts. Jillian paints her figures and abstractions bathed in vibrant colour. She is able to reflect her personal conflicts while allowing for the viewer's personal interpretations.
Skinny Dippers came from a place of longing and escapism. This series is a response to Jillian's previous work and finally giving herself permission to do just the opposite. The figures are unapologetic as they take up more space and let go.
