Jill Price graduated from OCAD University with an IAMD and an MFA, receiving a national SSHRC research grant for her investigations of land as archive. Price currently works as the Curator at Quest Art in the Midland Cultural Centre and teaches part-time at Georgian College and OCAD University. Price often reuses her own works in her practice, enabling her to reduce the excess of personal material, as well as pursue non-traditional means of creating.
"Currently confronting my settler past, present and future by considering what it means to consume, create and curate in Canada during a time of deep ecological and social crisis, the world as I knew it has become unsettled and more abstract.
Working to undo my personal archive of early paintings and drawings, I am investigating how unmaking can be an interdisciplinary methodology to create change at both a personal and institutional level. Surprising generative, unmaking in the studio involves endless exploration of processes such as erasure, cutting away, tearing, painting over, abstracting, disrupting and reconfiguration."
