UPCOMING SHOW September-October

ROBINWOOD
Jillian Piccrilli

Photography based mixed media

Opening Night Friday September 12, from 6-11pm
Show runs from Friday September 12 - October 3, 2014



Oakland-based artist Jillian Piccirilli’s new series Robinwood chronicles the life of her maternal family’s past handmade homestead. A three-bedroom-two-bath set on northern Michigan cow pasture land and inspired by blueprints lifted from a Better Homes & Gardens, Robinwood was the house that her grandparents Jim and Mae King built together. The Kings’ only grandchild, Piccirilli has created an illustrated ode to the space, which had been a constant against a typical life marked by transience. Through a merging of archaic photographic printing methods and painting that mines the family’s archives and artifacts, she has attempted to mime Jim and Mae’s impulses of creation and sharing. Robinwood is a re-creation and re-telling of the story of the space, which seeks to both contain and extend the homestead's life.

JILLIAN PICCIRILLI Studied art and anthropology at Cornell University, where she was the recipient of the University’s Faculty Medal of Art and Charles Goodwin Sands Memorial Medal of Art. She has exhibited in California, New York, Colorado, and Rhode Island, where her Providence Art Windows public art installation garnered praise in the Washington Post. She recently moved to Oakland, CA, where she serves as Director of Operations for the Oakland Art Murmur and consults privately for individual artists while maintaining her own art practice.
