Jill Journeaux’s work is characterised by an emphasis on the handmade, both by the artist herself and by others, the depiction of internal and external worlds simultaneously, and the domesticity of scale, source and reference. Her work is strongly informed by the decorative arts both as subject and as language.
The motifs and characters in the work are shaped by the artist’s physical, perceptual and imaginative experience.
"I am drawn to the quiet, to the whisper and ambiguity, to the intuitive and the evocative, the half remembered and the dreamlike, and to the sensuality of the decorative. Pattern, imprint, diagram, edge, line and overlay provide the means to bring together rich alignments and interconnections.View Portfolio
