Jill Torberson is an artist working in steel and mixed media. Jill’s design approach to steelwork is to create pieces that are light by design. “Light” in these works refers to both the structure as well as the way in which light and shadow interact with the art. She allows the structural integrity of the steel do the work, which enables her to design and fabricate artwork that seemingly floats, or is light, or can be seemingly fragile. Steel is the perfect material to realize her vision of lightness and strength. Jill is also interested in the natural patinas found in oxidized steel. She combines these patterns with acrylic paint and concrete to create wall works that are multi-layered and rich in both colors and textures.
