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.

Much of the conceptual and aesthetic impetus for Leah Hardy's artwork has been derived from interest in ritual objects, shrines and talismans—the intersection of the sacred and the secular. Personal iconography often includes parts of the body and flora presented in a contemplative manner. Hardy's newest work has been focused on insect-inspired forms, which become metaphors for the present human condition and also serve as an ethical inquiry into the scientific ability to genetically modify our food, alter our bodies and prolong life. Fragmented, altered with mechanical elements or re-contextualized, these life forms are formally preserved to reference our fascination with mortality and desire. The intended effect is for the pieces to be specimens—beautiful, yet at times, disturbing.
