Jill Orr



I have been working for many years as a performance artist and painter. I work across mediums including painting, drawing, photography, video and movement. I am interested in representations of identity and the recurring histories of people, place and the psychosocial environment.

“Jill Orr is a fiery artist whose work incorporates performance, paintings, video and photography which expresses the beauty, power and depth that is her trademark”
