  • About the work

TECHNIQUE: ETCHING

Etching. Aquatint with spitbite, photogravure, and Pochoir.

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.


About the Artist

1956 , United States

Jill Moser is an American abstract artist whose work explores the intersection of “painting, writing and the animated image.” 
She lives and works in New York City.


Education

Moser earned her B.A. from Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, in 1978, and her M.F.A. from Hunter College, New York, in 1981. 
She has been awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowship and a Max Beckmann Scholarship in Painting from the Brooklyn Museum. 
She has taught at Princeton, Virginia Commonwealth University, and several other prestigious institutions.


Technique

Moser has an interdisciplinary practice that includes painting, printmaking, drawing and collage. 
Her printmaking includes a diverse array of techniques, such as lithograph, etching, monoprint, intaglio, and screen printing. 
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. 
The lines and forms at first appear spontaneous, yet they evolve through a methodical, indexical process. 
Moser constructs her compositions in terms of figures on a ground. The surfaces are layered and textured, creating a sense that the lines, marks and figures are suspended in dimensional space. 
Color and tone add emotional and visual weight to the work, creating pictures that are at the same time self-referential, revelatory of the process of their making, and open to the interpretation of viewers.


Inspiration

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. 
She also finds inspiration in such things as the language of filmmaking, the history of symbology, and the collaborative process, for example inviting writers to contribute texts that Moser then interprets into abstract visual compositions.


Relevant Quotes

In their article about Moser on RomanovGrave.com, Fintan Boyle and Jennie Nichols wrote, “the sign, the word, the utterance, the shot, the mark as not transparent, but as sites of contested possibilities drenched in unending layers of connotation. It is this particular filtering of language and sign making that shaped Moser’s early work. And language, as writing, as graphic icon, as bearer of meaning, as a bundle of loose lipped conventions we all share and trade in has always, and continues to be a model in Moser’s work.”


Exhibitions

Moser has exhibited extensively around the world, including at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.


Collections

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.
