Jil Weinstock‘s art is drawn from memories from her past. She uses vintage nightgowns, childhood toys, and other materials to recreate and explore these memories. In her practice, rubber is used as a material to preserve, binding together objects and the memories they elicit. The common objects she focuses on are consequently transformed.
Born in Los Angeles, California, she currently works and resides in New York City. She studied at the University of California Berkeley where she received her MFA and BFA. Weinstock has been an Artist in Residence at the Museum of Art and Design in New York, NY. She is the recipient of a McGarth Grant and the Walter Gropius Award. Her work has been featured publications including The Huffington Post, Art in America, and Art News.
