Jill O'Connell, American

O'Connell-J-Moon Shell.jpg (38737 bytes)

Jill O'Connell is an artist of a sound traditional stamp. She has seriously dedicated herself to rendering a commonplace object in nature.
Ms. O'Connell explores and states the complexity and richness we have all discovered in ordinary natural forms. Her work recalls mindless or contemplative moments at the seashore when we have leisurely looked and have marveled at unexpectedly beautiful color harmonies and smooth surprising forms.
The colors are muted and reassuring. The range of Ms. O'Connell's palette of purples, grays and browns is remarkable given the difficulties of working in pastel.
Ms. O'Connell has a respect for nature and a care and commitment for the things she renders. Her manner is disciplined and quiet. Her images are like her shells, look carefully and you will be richly rewarded.
