February’s Emerging Artist, Jillian Dickson–in The ArtsCenter’s Corridor
Our Epidural Currency by Jillian Dickson
The series Our Epidural Currency examines the forgotten and neglected connection between our tactile bodies and wild nature. The pregnancy and delivery of my child was highly transformative in how I understand my body and it’s relationship to the natural world.
To accomplish this the highly detailed color pencil drawings fuses images of human organs with budding flowers, ribbons and butterflies to appear as a singular functioning unit. These drawn objects attempt to both recognize the inevitable connection between nature and the human body, as well as identify their awkward and alien-like relationship in our current time.
Jillian, originally from the Chicago area received her BFA from Bradley University and MFA from Clemson University. Jillian has exhibited her work at the Louvre Museum in Paris for the Drawing Now Show in 2012 as well as numerous galleries and museums in the United States. Jillian teaches part time at Elon University and maintains a vibrant studio practice in Chapel Hill. In the month of January of 2015, Jillian was featured in the Juxtapoz Art Blog. Jillian has taught at the Art Institute of Austin, Texas State University, Baylor University, Indiana University – Purdue University in Indianapolis as well as Interlochen Center for the Arts.
Opening Reception: Friday, February 6th, 6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery. **Please note that the opening reception will be held on the 1st Friday of the month and not in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display February 2nd-28th.
