About the Exhibition:
Hill currently lives and works in Fort Worth, TX. He grew up in the heart of the West Texas oil patch in Midland and graduated with a professional degree in architecture, from the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
Lee Hill states, “Love Removal Machine is intended as medium or device that makes us feel good, but deploys distraction that interferes with our ability to love the things we should. It might be something that provides a temporary escape from a dull reality, but eventually leads to further inner darkness and conflict.”
Lee Hill’s signature style can be seen in this exhibition which is evident in paintings that explore abstract modern design. They display the characteristics of order and chaos, randomness and geometry, precision and imperfections. By using these polar opposite artistic devices, he creates visual tension for the viewer. This tension explores the connections between nature and machine. His works are process driven through pouring and random mark making married to hard-edged geometric patterns. Lee Hill challenges the viewer to interpret his abstracted visual language.
All events pertaining to this exhibit are free and open to the public and held in the gallery in the Bernice Coulter Templeton Art Studio, Texas Wesleyan University, 1415 E. Vaught St, Fort Worth, TX.
