Jill Moser

Jill Moser’s paintings, prints, and works on paper are gestural, richly colored works in which chaotic bursts of energy are balanced by the artist’s impulse toward minimalism. Moser explains that her intention is to celebrate and crystallize the event of making—exposing the performative aspects of the painting process. Vibrant strokes and layered gestures appear on canvas and etching plates as an indexical record of her hand and body in motion. Born in New York City, Moser earned her Bachelor of Arts from Brown University (1978) and her Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College (1981). In addition to numerous solo exhibitions, she has exhibited in major group museum shows including Graphic Masters III: Highlights from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. (2010); Recent Acquisitions: Works on Paper, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (2003); Black & White Drawings, The Museum of Modern Art (1993), all, New York, New York; American Art Since WW II: Prints & Drawings, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois (1989); Line: Making the Mark, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas (2015). She currently lives and works in New York, NY.
