Jill Nathanson became fascinated by color-based painting at Bennington College in the 1970’s.  Over the last four decades, she has deepened her exploration of color dynamics, seeking to transmit affective realities of seeing.

Nathanson is represented by Berry Campbell Gallery, NYC.  Earlier this year, her work was featured in “Confronting the Canvas, Women of Abstraction” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, Florida. In 2015 she was the subject of a solo show at Berry Campbell.  Previous solo shows include Messineo Art Projects/Wyman Contemporary, Elizabeth Harris Gallery, June Kelly Gallery, Derfner Judaica Museum, Ethan Cohen Fine Arts, Triangle Center Gallery (all NYC).

She has participated in many group exhibitions, including “Color as Structure/Structure as Color “at Lori Bookstein Fine Art, “Hans Hofmann: The Legacy” at The Painting Center, “The Annual 2012” at the National Academy Museum,  “Painting Abstraction” at The New York Studio School.  Nathanson is included in the collections of The Agnes Etherington Art Center, Queens University, Kingston, Ontario; Hines Industrial, Boston, MA, Maimonides Hospital, Brooklyn, New York; and Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts.
