Gouache on paper.
Jill Moser is an American abstract artist whose work explores the intersection of “painting, writing and the animated image.”
Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Art institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Seattle Art Museum, and many others.
Moser has an interdisciplinary practice that includes painting, printmaking, drawing and collage.
Her work can be understood in relation to the history of written language—marks that carry meaning. Her brush marks are lyrical, gestural and calligraphic.
Moser is inspired by languages, whether written, visual, indexical, or gestural. She seeks balance similar to that sought by a poet—between conveying enough meaning that the viewer has a guided revelatory experience, and allowing enough room for surprise during the creation and presentation of the work that additional layers of meaning can emerge.
