Devoid of pictorial motifs and narratives, the work of Texas-based painter Lee Albert Hill follows a strictly process driven formal vision. The understanding for each painting is contained within and Hill’s interests lie in the essentials: strong relationships of form, composition, color, line and geometric flourishes that impart the work with unique character.
Hill uses a technique that combines a foreground of rigorous hard-edged mark-making with an informal assemblage of composition, background and texture. His sleight-of-hand hovers between these elements resulting in images that obscure the nature of their hand made production. Upon closer inspection each piece reveals a sense of genealogy and inscribed time imparting a quality of permanence.
Born in Dallas, TX in 1963 Hill received his 5-Year Professional degree in Architecture from Texas Tech University in 1986. In addition to his painting practice, he has been a member of the American Institute of Architects and a registered practicing architect since 1991. Hill’s work can be found in private and public collections such as American Airlines, Austin Texas Developer Riverside Resources, NYC based Loews Hotels, Marriott Corporation and SAMTX Investments. Hill is represented by CAMIBAart Gallery (Austin, TX USA).
