Artist Statement

 

“Look, look deep into nature and you will understand everything better.”

-A. Einstein

 

Jill Viney was born in a coastal town in California.  She spent many hours among the rocks and tide pools.  After moving to New York as an artist, she learned to dive on a short Carribean holiday.  From land, we see the ocean as surface; diving underneath it, one discovers an unknown and mysterious world.  Advances in technology have provided the power to see farther into space and deeper into ocean waters.  Robot spacecraft and submersibles photographed these new visions, making them accessible to the public.

The artist has sought to express those new spaces in her sculpture.  Early on, she worked with enclosed space in plexi or fiberglass; a sculpture that occupied mass but also contained space.  This space was structured to give the viewer changing perceptions of light and color as she or he moved around the sculpture.  Her newest work outdoors follows that interest of color, light, and space, but adds containment in a new form
