WALLWORKS NEW YORK CELEBRATES WOMEN'S MONTH WITH A FIRST EVER SOLO EXHIBITION FROM JILLIAN KING!
WALLWORKS NEW YORK opens its doors and walls to New York native, Jillian King and her boisterous artwork of vintage muscle cars.
Every March, gallery director Anna Matos strives to have an exhibition that celebrates women in art in creative ways. She explains her views of Jillian’s works:
What is the most interesting aspect of Jillian’s work is that at first
glance, most viewers would not associate her subject matter with
‘being a woman’. It challenges our preconceived notions of typical
gender roles. I like that we can immediately ask ‘Well why
WOULDN’T a woman want to focus her gaze on cars?’ It strikes
up an internal dialogue.
Jillian's work has been driven by a passion for capturing the essence of automotive energy and the beauty she finds in studying and photographing cars. She continually strives to bring a fresh perspective to her paintings, inspired by her New York City roots, Parisian influences, and the years spent in London. Jillian finds boundless creative fuel for her continued exploration of automobiles and now motorcycles in her artwork.
CAR SHOW marks Jillian’s first ever solo exhibition in New York City, her hometown. Featuring mostly new work, CAR SHOW is a personal and creative stepping stone in her artistic career.
