Aurelia's Dream, another of Jill’s recent paintings, presents a masterful play of light and form, punctuated with intense, vibrant colors. The main figure, who carries a rich and regal presence, also charms the eye with her supple and youthful body. This painting, as well as Psyche, is oddly reminiscent of some of the Italian masterpieces of the 15th century-- works which demonstrate the same meditative, inward gaze of the eyes, the same high forehead, and the same liquid perfection of skin tones. The wonderfully outrageous, bouffant headdress of the main figure is, in fact, suggestive of those worn in the 15th century Italian court.
Aurelia rests her cheek on long and graceful fingers in a pose of utmost composure and rest. As we ponder the pose, along with the classic, quiet beauty of her expression, we wonder: Is she a goddess? What interior fantasies is she weaving? Is she dreaming of creating the universe?
