THE SUBCONSCIOUS OF SOCIETY OR THE VERY NATURE OF EVERYTHING
It is dark. Unsettling. Crows. Fetuses. Confetti. Morphed connectedness of Animals and Humans. Regal. Unnerving. What is it?
If art seems a bit cryptic, there's a good reason for it, don't you think?
Jill Tegan Doherty lives for her art – and she also lives through it.
Whether painting, drawing or performance, Jill Tegan Doherty let’s her works merge across multiple levels of consciousness and transitional states of mind and body.
In nature – especially in the forest near her home in Berlin – she feels the precious beauty that helps her to live through the darker sides of her experiences. In most of her series, she uses animals to visualize her reflections and as metaphors of human-social challenges and constraints. “They are sort of peculiar self-portraits, visually exploring our place in the world,” Jill says.
The moment you think you see human feelings, characters, fashion codes or real spaces in the paintings, everything begins to spin like a carousel of colors, slowly revealing intertwined parallel realities. Explore the playful power of Jill Tegan Doherty’s extraordinary paintings and experience a transcendence through various states of reality. You are guaranteed to encounter unsettling and unexpected twists along the way.
Breaking from conventional seasonal collections, By Told brings you small drop collections throughout the year, each with one work of Art at center stage.
