The work of artist Jill Levine takes inspiration from the iconography of folklore, myth and ancient worlds. Her references include everything from Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec God of the Underworld, to Mayan glyphs and Dia de los Muertos symbology. Textile patterns and highly geometric lines characterize her colorful sculptures, which appear like abstract religious icons.

Levine has been exhibiting regularly since the late 1970’s in both group and solo exhibitions. In 2000 she was the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and in 2005 a NYFA Fellowship. Her sculpture is included among numerous private and corporate collections worldwide as well as in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, and the Art in Embassies, Mumbai Embassy.
