Jennifer Ilett is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Toronto, ON. Her work has been featured in American Illustration, Communication Arts, CMYK Magazine, and on various art and design websites. She currently works as a freelance illustrator, designer, and fine artist. She has exhibited in Canada and the USA.
Ilett’s work draws upon elements of the every day, infused with her own observations and the fantastical. Her latest works interpret subjects and ideas with which she has little personal experience, creating feelings which teeter between bold assumption and shy discomfort, while at the same exuding an overall familiarity.
As Seen From Space is an immersive approach to Ilett’s illustrative work, with a combination of illustration, sculptural elements, and viewer interaction. The installation presents an exploration of Earth and humankind from the viewpoint of an extra-terrestrial being. Entering the space will transport the viewer to an otherworldly hoarder’s private collection of Earthly observations. The works will present a unique interpretation of every day life, emotions, and interactions.
IWCT is an experiential illustration event that will be on public display at the Gladstone Hotel from March 6–30, 2014.
Curated by Leila Courey, IWCT is a juried exhibition of experiential illustration that features work by emerging and established artists. Selected projects use illustration—or other art forms related to it—to occupy or alter the hotel’s 2nd floor gallery and public spaces, in dramatic, conceptual, and experimental ways.
