I painted this piece after attending the tax march in Washington, DC. At one point during the event, I noticed the crowd had grown as more and more people gathered in front of the capital. The piece was done with inks and dyes over rice paper on panel board, and the painting goes around the edges. It is coated with resin to enhance the colors and protect the surface.

Getting to Know Jill

J. Concetta received her MA in Design from the University of Minnesota where she studied color theory under great artists. One professor, Marian-Ortolf Bagley, often said that a painting must work in all directions to be truly unified. So J. would test works by hanging them upside down, and in each direction. J. sold some paintings in Minneapolis after graduation, but went on to manage the ink and paint department of an animation studio. The intense hues of the inking technique, along with Paul Klee’s use of transparent color, strongly influence her current body of work.
