Jane Gillespie is a Los Angeles based artist. She received her MFA from Claremont Graduate university and her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California. Jane’s work has been exhibited throughout Southern California and is part of the Los Angeles Metro’s public art collection. She was a Maguire Fellow and a recipient of the Joe Sonneman Photography Award. Currently, Jane is adjunct faculty at Biola University and Azusa Pacific University.
Gillespie’s work draws from both the domestic and nomadic, exploring the existence of a walled and wall-less life. The sculptural forms stand as boundary markers, similar to fences, property lines, or signposts. The all-white forms reference hunting traps, animal hides, and shelters. She uses geometric patterning to point to both interior dwellings and designs found within the natural world.
