About

Abstract landscape painting of small houses on a sienna orange background Brother Brother by Robert Hite, painted in 2016 Made with oil paint and mixed media 18 x 24 inches unframed 19.25 x 25 inches framed signed on reverse This abstract mixed media painting of whimsical architectural structures was created by painter and photographer Robert Hite in 2016. The artist's work often reflects the theme of the 'home', depicting houses of a fantastical nature captured in on-site or abstract landscapes. The delicately drawn houses with curved rooftops rest upon a sienna orange landscape while a faint horizon is suggested with changing shades of earth toned color. Paint is applied liberally, resulting a thick, impasto surface that can be likened to dried clay. The abstract landscape is framed with a simple black floater frame and there is wire installed on the back. About the artist: Born in 1956 in rural Virginia, Robert Hite attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. After studying traditional ink brush painting in Malaysia, he worked as a studio assistant with Washington Color School painter Leon Berkowitz. Informed both by a rich southern narrative tradition and closeness to natural environments, Hite's imagery often draws upon his memories of youthful wanderings in the Virginia tide waters. He has sought out and photographed rural dwellings not only in the southern United States and the Caribbean, but also in Central and South America, as well as Europe and Asia. In 1997, Hite and his family moved to a nineteenth¬century Methodist church and parsonage in the village of Esopus, New York. The Nassau County Museum of Art hosted a solo show of Hite’s work in 2011 titled Imagined Histories. He was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014. In 2016, the artist was given a dual-site solo exhibition at the Hancock Shaker Village and the Berkshire Museum. “Living on Earth” included Hite’s paintings, photographs and structural installations. His exhibit at the Shaker Museum incorporated two site¬ specific outdoor sculptures, which he tried successfully intergrated into their surroundings: a village dating back to the late 18thcentury, notable for its large and iconic round stone barn from 1826. More about the artist: Though Robert Hite's work deals in abstraction, images of structures, dwellings, and living spaces have become central to his pieces. Hite now works in photography, painting, and sculpture, although they often intersect through common imagery and sentiment. In 1997, Hite and his family moved to Esopus, NY, a small town in the Hudson Valley where he converted a 1840’s Methodist church into his home and studio. There he has created a productive artistic space for himself, and sometimes others. Selections from the Imagined Histories series incorporate whimsical architectural structures into the reality of the valley’s landscape. Hite builds small constructions in his studio resembling houses and towers and then places them in various locations near the Hudson River in Upstate New York. The result is a unique style of storytelling, opening up possibilities of exploring multiple narratives suggested by each image.
