Jillian is a New England based 2D artist with a focus on portraits. Standing firmly in the tradition of pop artists before her, her Warhol-esque portraits of pop culture icons glitter as brilliantly as her subjects. Each portrait is produced with glitter and holographic paint to create dazzling 3D effects, and to manifest a unique experience based on the position of the viewer.
Her idea is to create a multi-faceted collaborative experience with the viewer. Through the use of the glitter and shine, Jillian forges a veil for her subjects, asking viewers to pull back the veil and understand the subject in their own ways; thus replicating the parasocial relationship of celebrity and public.
