The title, "Divided," represents our divided political climate. This is demonstrated through blocks of color, segmented areas and perspective. The painting is done with inks, dyes, and acrylic paint on rice paper over gallery wrapped canvas. The image continues around the sides. The canvas 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.
