It's a love / hate relationship (pink/teal)
Coventry rag 290gsm
Edition of 75
It's a love / hate relationship playfully depicts the dual relationship that comes with having breasts. The figure stands proudly with their chest erect while simultaneously trying to smash one breast down. It’s a complicated relationship that’s entangled in a web of societal expectations, sexuality, and physical experience.
Jillian Evelyn’s paintings combine the contorted female figure with graphic shapes and a limited color palette. Her work explores the struggle of womanhood and the anxiety that arises from societal expectations.
Jillian studied illustration at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
After graduating, she worked as a footwear designer for several years before moving to California to pursue her career as a full time painter.
Jillian lives in Los Angeles with her pug Olie.
