Jill Scipione was born in Ashtabula, Ohio, on Lake Erie. She received early art training at the Butler Institute of American Art when her family moved to the Youngstown area, and majored in painting at Carnegie-Mellon University where she earned her BFA. In 1993 she was awarded a Pollock-Krasner grant. Her work has been seen in galleries, museums, and art-spaces in New York City, New Jersey, Boston, Santa Fe, and throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio. Scipione's work concerns corporeality, exploring themes of body and soul, memory and justice. She works from a variety of source material including sacred art, marine life and undersea videos, butcher charts and text books, Scipione began working from museum biology and anthropology collections at the Smithsonian and other museums in the mid-90s, incorporating the imagery into her artwork. In 2007, she began an ongoing drawing study of human skulls of historic peoples from global, anthropological museum collections. Her most recent series of works springs from the forms in this book, with Renaissance paintings as their source.
