In WHITEOUT Jill Rock has invited artists, musicians, poets, writers and performers to explore their relationship to WHITE whether it be scientific, social, mythical, psychological, religious or aesthetic. Wherever in the world, painting fragments of wood picked up off the ground she tackles the problem of the relationship between object and subject. Jill Rock works where nature, culture and art meet.
“It is as if in the time consuming and concentrated process of finding, cleaning and painting fragments of wood I am attempting to break down the dualism of object and subject to create a unity. In Remember the Dance I became fascinated by the fact that as I built up the layers of white gesso the relationships changed as the shadow took on the dominant role in defining the work.”
In times when all points of reference are being eroded things are known by their shadow - the whiter the white the darker the shadow.
Jill Rock is a London based artist. A sense of place is important to her and she has worked and shown her work worldwide. This summer she has worked in Nunhead Cemetery London, in Rome creating a solo exhibition “Psychogeographical Wanderings in The Caffarella” and at Kurt Schwitter’s Merzbarn in Cumbria. At Hundred Years Gallery she has found a congenial place where artists meet to explore the relationships between art forms.
