Scott E. Hill

The work of artist Scott E. Hill is at once old-fashioned and sophisticated. Drawing from memories of his childhood in Northwest Georgia, a place he went or a color he saw could be the catalyst that sets the process in motion. His paintings are reminiscent of a long-gone style found in the brooding landscapes of 16th Century Spanish artists and the shadowy, gilt-framed works of 19th Century Romanticism. Landscapes are a favorite subject for Hill, and the richness and texture of his work are the results of layering his paint and using an age-old technique called "glazing." Glazing involves brushing linseed oil, turpentine, or varnish over a layer of paint, which allows the colors underneath to bleed through and gives the work an aged appearance. Although he works primarily with oil, Hill also experiments with watercolors, coffee stains and oil pastels, and has an impressive body of graphite drawings as well. Regardless of medium, a limited palette and a skilled hand convey a certain mood...much the same as that sense of tranquility that follows a summer storm, as well as the quiet violence that precedes it.
