Jill Smith

Artist Statement

Jill Smith is an interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Her most recent work explores the fragility and absurdity of the body and mind, as well as the connective possibilities of materiality. By combining familiar collective motifs with organic, bodily forms, her work calls into question how one both exists and performs as a social body. While Smith’s work stimulates the imagination through whimsical and nonsensical colour and form, it is the relatable, yet ambiguous materiality that enables the viewer to both empathize with and question the nature of internalized and communal interaction.
