Event Description

Amy Hill

"Young and Innocent"

April 15-May 22

Opening Reception: Friday, April 15th, 7-9PM

Front Room Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Amy Hill entitled “Young and Innocent.”

Amy Hill’s inspiration for her most recent body of work is American Folk Art, which served as a reflection of the artists’ impressions of society, its needs and mores. A common subject was family, and more specifically, children, often depicted with a focus on their innocence, holding cuddly animals in bucolic settings.

In updating these paintings, Hill has depicted urban children decorated by logos, tattoos, piercings, drugs and digital media. This allows for an examination of the phenomenon of innocence, its value, and the possibility of its survival in a fast moving world. With technical proficiency, Hill explores the charm and directness of Folk Art by employing the era’s distortions of perspective and anatomy, as well as a highly personal perspective.

This new series of paintings continues Hill’s examination of earlier eras in art history. The eras are chosen for her stylistic kinship with their respective artists, allowing her to carry on a dialogue with them. Hill revives the styles and makes them her own by exploring themes that can be traced to the present day. Through portraiture, a genre that runs throughout art history, Hill utilizes a variety of poses, gestures, fashion and accouterments to make social, psychological and anthropological statements. Humor emerges through the juxtaposition of modern day fashion and historical figures.
