I got an email from Paris Gerrad, who guided me to her mother - Jill's hauntingly beautiful work. Jill Barton, who resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, is in love with the ancient and is inspired by the venerable images of the past. She identifies with the Japanese aesthetic, wabi-sabi, which points always to what is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.
Her philosophy, and her technique are aptly reflected in her art. As she paints, she hopes that her paintings inspire, heal, open, connect and delight the viewer...
Here you will find a selection of her art that depict Oriental deities.
