Jilly Evans

Artists Bio

Jilly is a visual artist based at the Arches Studios in Southampton. “I use Craft to make Art to Provoke Thought. Looking at the hidden aspects of life, exploring themes seemingly as diverse as graffiti to domestic labour, thinking about unseen people and the things they make and do. In my cross stitched versions of local street tags I’m wondering who is making them and why, seeing them as a creative way of claiming space in the city rather than an act of vandalism, taking them out of context and seeing the beauty in them.”
