I love nature, surrealist beauty and naked emotions. I think I’m curious and caustic by turns… I try to bring into the canvas something that exists already as a whirlpool of complex emotions. I work with memory, intuition and desires, so each painting is like a laboratory experiment where the result depends on how the materials—pigments, mediums, brushes—reacted to that specific nervous impulse. — Jill Mulleady
