Nilly Gill's Work

Nilly Gill, FIG member, is working in both paint and digitally these days. Below is Colors, an oil on canvas, 7x5", June 2013. The painting is from a new body of work she started in January 2013, one year after the loss of her daughter. In Colors are two dolls representing two daughters she lost of two races, Iris and Leora. They were personal toys as well as props in her installations for large watercolors she did earlier on. 

This is Reflected Self, oil on canvas, 10x8", January 2014.

In her most recent work, she has been experimenting for the first time with Appleworks 6, naming it "mousework" because she draws with her iMac mouse. The two images below are some of the over 25 images she has created. This is I Watched You Grow, March 31, 2014.

This is Pushing the Limit, March 5, 2014.
