Jill Scipione's art concerns themes of life and death, eternity and hope.
Her ideas and images have their foundations in various cultures and
faiths since antiquity and make use of universal symbol and archetype.
Corporeal subjects such as the fish and the cuts of meat are arranged in a schematic of immeasurable realities. These new objects- cart, wheel, column,
are familiar yet ancient; building blocks of civilization. The deep-sea fish are constructed from studies of Giotto's paintings from the 1300s.
The robed figures lose their identity and become new beings.The paintings have as their subject frailty, substitution, incarnation and restoration.
