University of North Texas Health Science Center Atrium Gallery - Summer 2015
Bluestem grass is increasingly popular in landscapes because it furthers sustainability by tolerating drought and various soil conditions. It also has artistic potential as shown in an exhibit now on view and open to the public in the UNT Health Science Center’s Atrium Gallery.
Works by Lee-Albert Hill, who grew up in West Texas, are on exhibit through July, including pieces from his “Bluestem Series.” Work in the series is produced in several steps. Hill selects bluestem specimens for their potential to create linear impressions in acrylic paint. Grass and paint are then spread out on canvas and exposed to the weather. After weathering, the piece is brought into Hill’s Fort Worth studio, where he tapes off forms and patterns, then paints over them.
After living and working in the Connecticut/New York area for many years, Hill returned to Texas and lives in Fort Worth. In addition to his work as a painter, he is an architect and associate principal at Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford Architects. His work has been featured twice at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art near San Francisco and shown in curated group exhibitions in New Orleans; Houston; Berlin, Germany; and Moscow, Russia.
The Atrium Gallery is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on the first floor of the Carl E. Everett Building.
NEW REPRESENTATION - 02/15/14
My work is now represented and available through ARTERRA in Bellevue WA. ARTERRA is a national full service art source for the trade, commercial and corporate clients only.
Review of Bluestem Show at the LHUCA 2013 - By David Cummings
I am a fan of abstract art in general and interpretive abstract art in particular so "Bluestem" by Lee Albert Hill at LHUCA’s Christine DeVitt Exhibition Hall June 7 through July 27, 2013 is very appealing. Repeated visits are energizing. Linear and geometric spaces in acrylic paint, grass and paint overlaid on canvas and then exposed to ambient outdoor weather, reveal natural forms that are then over-painted. Bluestem is a native prairie grass on the southern high plains. The reductive contrasting patterns that evolve, express bold forms that stretch our imaginations. Hill is both architect and artist so one interpretation is looking for a visual transition from natural space to the built occupation of space produced by an architect.
