Jill Moser was commissioned in 2009 to create an image to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Lincoln Center.
Moser's work explores the intersections of painting, writing, and the animated image. Her paintings are deceptively lucid and satisfyingly complex. She lays down lines of a single color on a pure white ground and realizes compositions both taut and at ease. The lines are swift yet stilled, fixed and embedded in the residue of a process of erasure and adjustment. Incremental marks and events of the hand establish an environment in which the usual relationship of figure to ground becomes indeterminate. The deep space carved by Moser’s looping, repeating, rhythmic line punctures the ground and establishes a velvety void at the areas where lines converge and give over their identity as line to form.
Her paintings, drawings, prints, and artist's books have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe, and featured in prominent collections, including; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The National Gallery of Art, The Yale University Art Gallery, The Fogg Art Museum, and The National Library of France. Over the past two decades, Moser has made numerous print editions with Jungle Press, Burnet Editions, Wingate Studios, Landfall Press, Brand X, Collaborative Art Editions, and Manneken Press.
She has worked collaboratively on projects with poets, artists, designers, and architects. She has taught at Princeton University, Virginia Commonwealth University, SUNY, and The School of Visual Arts and lectured across the United States.
