Jill Boualaxai

I am interested in places, spaces, cities and structure, from the unfamiliar of far away cultures to the secret hidden spaces in the city where I live.

 

My work describes the feelings and impressions of the places I have visited and the things that are precious to me.

 

I work with materials such as egg, tempera,beeswax and gesso. Incorporating found ephemera into my paintings, constantly reworking and layering the 

materials to evoke a sense of space.
