Jill Macleod

Jill’s paintings transform images into flat shapes, clean lines, and predominantly solid blocks of colour, using different textures within the different spaces of a painting. Much of her work focuses on harbours, water, and landscape. Working mainly in acrylic, the process of constructing the composition often results from deconstructing the idea, sketch, photograph, or object to its simplest geometric form. Some of her work explores the ways memory can fade from something solid and tangible, transforming this into a hollow shape or an outline to depict the idea that memory may be distorted, simplified, or even lost over time.
