Jill Newman

Jill New­man is a visual artist work­ing both indi­vid­u­ally and col­lab­o­ra­tively in paint­ing, draw­ing, sculp­ture and instal­la­tion. Work­ing with a focus on the his­tor­i­cal and social impli­ca­tions sym­bol­ized through archi­tec­ture, she is invested in expand­ing con­cepts of Paint­ing through the dou­bling of paint­ing as arti­fact or instal­la­tion.  She received her MFA from CalArts and her BS from the Uni­ver­sity of Wisconsin-Madison.
