Jill King’s sculptures harness universal energies into a static form. Relating to otherworldly regions, her current artworks speak of inner growth and transformation. For inspiration, she looks at earthly forces of nature; a hurricane over the ocean, a cosmic Nebula bursting in space or a blossoming flower. Welded steel rod, sewn sheer fabrics and hand-painted acrylics are some of the materials used to create my dimensional wall works. King combines a mixture of media, that captures visual oppositions- heavy and light, sturdy and fragile, opaque and solid.
King has exhibited in many private and public places in Chicago including: The Harris Theater, The Lincoln Park Conservatory, Expo Chicago, SOFA, and The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art. King is currently exhibiting her work at Alma Art + Interiors, Chicago.
Her work is housed in several private and public collections including; The Lorraine Morton Civic Center -Evanston IL, The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy -Aurora, IL, Lewis University (Science Building)- Romeoville IL , Richland College-Decatur IL. and the Mills House Hotel in Charleston SC.
