Jill Pilon at Gibsons Public Art Gallery

I took the day off this past Monday to do a day trip to Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast with artist friends, Mary Anne Tateishi and Vanessa Lam. We went specifically to see a solo show of work by Jill Pilon at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, but also fit in a few other things. I love it when an art road trip comes together!

Jill’s work is beautiful and full of intriguing details that require closer observation. My favourite pieces were the ones with stripes and strong geometric lines, but I was also drawn into ones with a subtler colour palette and mark making details of scribbled writing partially revealed under layers of paint.

It’s an inspiring show, but it comes to an end this Sunday. If you happen to be on the Sunshine Coast this weekend drop into the gallery to see it.
