The Grand Opening of the Jill Joy Gallery took place on Saturday, January 16, 2016. This exhibition, features luminous abstract oil paintings that address the evolution of consciousness in a universal field of love.
In Consciousness – New Paintings, Jill Joy explores the interplay of the unseen worlds of spiritual and emotional energy as an individual soul evolves towards a higher state of consciousness. Her paintings evolve from dark to light, representing the movement from unconscious to conscious awareness. The sky and sea are referenced as metaphors for universal consciousness experienced by the individual. Joy’s paintings are snapshots of her mental and emotional experiences of self-awareness in a field of universal love. They are executed in a meditative trance and thus become meditative objects, akin to contemporary mandalas.
The Jill Joy Gallery will not only serve as a work and showcase space for Ms. Joy, but also as a space to support other artists whose work addresses spiritual evolution. An outlier to the core, she is thrilled open a gallery of her own where she can promote spirituality through art and empower independent work.
Jill Joy was raised in Arizona, Hawaii and Massachusetts under trying financial and emotional circumstances. The transcendence of these circumstances has fed her spiritual and artistic journey. She is a self-taught painter with an intuitive process. There are elements of abstract expressionism, surrealism and minimalism in her work, culminating in a dynamic yet peaceful visual experience. Having lived in Southern California for the past 13 years, she is strongly influenced by the light, ocean and the natural elements of the coastal desert. Jill’s work is represented by galleries in Florida, Texas, and Los Angeles and can be found in private collections across the United States. She has won numerous awards and residencies.
