Jillian MacLachlan is a Toronto-based painter and textile artist. A graduate of both Biology and Fine Art, Jillian’s work focuses on representations of the human form as an object of medical and scientific study.
While working at the Gladstone, Jillian is creating a series of india ink paintings that are part of her larger body of work titled Slide Series. The paintings’ abstract forms reference organic material, creating fluidity within the otherwise rigid lens of medical study.
