OPENING RECEPTION /// Thursday Aug 3rd 2017
Ian Hill & Alyson McCrink Duel Solo Show
Ian Hill is a painter, inspired by obscure and humorous juxtapositions. Hill does contemporary realist paintings that are both narrative and surreal. His oil painting's are concocted from memories, still-life, digital manipulation, classical paintings, vintage photo's, nature, and quantum theories.
As well as receiving awards such as the "Direct Art Award" from the Limner Gallery, and being seen in publications like Spectrum Fantasy, Hill has exhibited in San Francisco, Seattle, New York, and abroad.
I try to create otherworldliness to everyday situations. I am just trying to capture the possibilities that we all possess. Any project I am faced with, I use my knowledge of artistic principles that I have learned and experienced. I love the challenge of conquering a new design idea and deciding the medium that best represents the project as a whole.
I have seven years of professional experience as a graphic designer and illustrator. I received my B.F.A. in Graphic Design with a minor in English from Boise State University.
I am a native of the west and love the rich history of the land and am in nature as much as possible. If I'm not at my desk, you can find me with my dog Jack in the wild, on a sailboat or at a show.
