Not exactly an artist statement you’d expect, but Jill’s body of work does indeed reveal pieces of a distinctly different nature. Meticulously cut balance sheets and carefully-assembled 3D paper sculptures are all created in the corner of Jill’s naturally neat room—a space where everything is ordered, from ledger paper to tweezers and X-acto knives.
“Luckily, I don’t need a lot of space for the work that I do—just having a desk does the trick. Half of my bedroom serves as my studio space,” she explains. “I try to give myself rules about when I’m working and when I’m not.”
“For the past seven years, I’ve been working exclusively with ledger paper. I’m interested in exploring ideas about serial structure, currency, our financial architecture, capital as an ungrounded sign, and ‘value’ in general,” says Jill Sylvia in a recent In The Make interview.
