Jill Smith is an interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto, Ontario (b. 1995). Her most recent work explores intimacy in the maker-object relationship, as well as the connective possibilities of material. By re-contextualizing familiar motifs and archetypal symbols with organic forms, her work captures everyday absurdity and calls into question how one both exists and performs in relation to the objects/bodies around them.
Smith has exhibited work in spaces across Ontario, such as The Brandscape, VSVSVS, and Forest City Gallery, as well as Friends and Neighbours Gallery in Montreal, Quebec. Smith holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honors Specialization in Studio Art) from Western University in London, Ontario, and has participated in artist residency programs at AGA LAB in Amsterdam, NL (September 2017), and Luminous Bodies at Artscape Gibraltar Point (Toronto, June-July 2018).
