Jill Townsley is an artist who works predominantly with sculpture, though her practice has expanded to include time-based media, especially time-lapse animation that documents her process or the temporality of her large sculptures. Her exhibitions may also include drawing and photography. She studied Sculpture at the Royal College
of Art and has a practice-based PhD in Fine Art from Liverpool University, for which she received a Gladstone Fellowship from the University of Chester.
Her work has been reviewed in the journal Artfractures and featured in a variety of newspapers and magazines such as: the Washington Post, New York Times, Korean Elle Magazine, AD magazine, Craft Magazine and the Independent. She has had work commissioned by the Towner Contemporary in Eastbourne, UK and by the architects’ firm Gensler for the offices of Clifford Chance in Washington DC, USA.
Highlighted exhibitions include a solo exhibition ‘TOIL’ at Project 4 Gallery also in Washington DC and work included in ‘Second Lives – Remixing the Ordinary’, at the Museum of Art and Design in New York, where she exhibited alongside Ai Weiwei, Cornelia Parker, Do-ho Suh et-al. She has exhibited widely in the UK and has had
solo exhibitions at the Nunnery Gallery London, Huddersfield Art Gallery and Hatfield University Gallery.
Jill was a finalist in the 5th international Arte Laguna Prize, exhibiting at the Venice Arsenale where she won the Juried Press Award. Jill is also a Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Art at the University of Huddersfield.
