From Cameras to Cars, New Work by Jessica Brilli
Jessica Brilli's vintage-inspired still life paintings have been favorites on our site for some time now. Today we're thrilled to release three new works from her ever-expanding portfolio: Nova, Obispo, and High Low - ripe with fresh imagery, gorgeous pastel color palettes, and familiar scenes of nostalgic Americana.
"Inspired by Kodachrome slides and generations-old photographs gathered from yard sales and basements across America, Brilli brings a contemporary eye to subjects often overlooked or forgotten. She sees her paintings as a way of giving renewed life to images that haven’t been seen in decades. Having had no direct experience with the images, the process of painting them takes on a different dimension for Brilli; like borrowing memories and elaborating, editing, or directing stories that intersect the knowledge and assumptions of two people who are strangers to each other."
