About

9"x12" oil on panel, signed on reverse. Painted in the Northern Renaissance style of portraiture, this oil painting depicts a sensitive portrait of an auburn haired woman in a classical pose. The style of the figure's clothes denotes current trends, with a logo covered sports jacket, with stitched colors in a satin black, yellow, green and red. Amy Hill's impeccable attention to detail brings a sense of luminosity and presents the viewer with new discoveries within her paintings. Amy Hill's paintings are updates of artworks from earlier eras. She chooses these eras because of her stylistic kinship with the artists from those periods, which allows her to create a dialog through painting. Each era brings up a particular theme which Amy Hill traces to the present day. Amy Hill focuses on portraiture as it is a genre that runs through art history and allows her to to make social, psychological and anthropological statements about the subjects through poses, gestures and fashion detail. Humor emerges through the juxtaposition of modern day fashion and historical figures.

Reed Foundation grant, a grant from Art Matters, studio grant from the Elizabeth Foundation.
