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. Recent exhibition venues include the Fellows of Contemporary Art (FOCA), Los Angeles, Dumbo Art Center (DAC), NY, POST, Los Angeles, Side Street Projects, Pasadena, and Kristi Engle Gallery, Los Angeles. Newman was awarded a seven-week artist residency at The Banff Centre, Canada. She has lectured at institutions such as Woodbury University, Moorpark College, and UC-Riverside and moderated panel discussion Painters Beyond Painting at the Mandrake in 2011. She and artist Bari Ziperstein recently formed Survey West Collaborative, which received a grant from the City of Pasadena Department of Cultural Affairs for a public art installation at Side Street Projects, Pasadena. Survey West also curated Site as Symbol at the Fellows of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 2011.
