Jill Sykes Among The Sycamores

Categories: Art + Graphics

The swaying of a Sycamore branch as it gently plays in the breeze makes music almost like a lullaby soothing ones emotions into a meditative peace is what I see when I look at the work of artist Jill Sykes’ latest creations.  Jill Sykes explores color, shape, movement and mood articulated in botanical shadows with a minimalist perspective of positive and negative space. Capturing random patterning, which is fluid and changing, simple right? Do not be fooled, simple is hard to do as it brings intense scrutiny to each element.

Patron and architect Michael Kovac, commissioned Sykes to imprint her creativity on the exterior walls of a house of his own design, Sycamore House, echoing the artistry of nature itself. The trees’ shadows are permanently etched into the concrete walls of the house creating an extraordinary new canvas. A three year project which often happens when confronted with challenges of experimenting in new materials creating custom designed details. This inspired a new series of smaller works that you can take home and hang on the interior.
