Amy Hill
Contemporary Renaissance Portrait "Girl with Computer" oil on canvas

$4,000

About

oil on canvas, 20"x27, signed on reverse by the artist. Inspired by Northern Renaissance style of portraiture, this contemporary portrait is posed in front of modern environment of a computer desk and is dress in contemporary dress. The girl's gaze is directly to the viewer's eyes. Her curled blond locks neatly set on her shoulders. A red with white polka dot bow is pinned to the black vest of her red dress with the same white polka dots. The city view behind the figure looks out to an urban view with a billboard advertisement and the hint of trees. This painting 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. Amy Hill received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and studied at New York University. She has received grants from the Peter S. Reed Foundation and Art Matters and a studio grant from the Elizabeth Foundation.
