Lee Albert Hill
I currently live and practice in Fort Worth, Texas but grew up in the heart of the West Texas oil patch in Midland. I graduated with a 5-year professional degree in Architecture from the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. I’m currently represented by CAMIBAart in Austin, Texas and my paintings have been shown at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in California, the galleries at Angelo State and Texas Wesleyan Universities, Fort Works Art and ARTSPACE 111 in Fort Worth, the K-Space Contemporary in Corpus Christie and at the LHUCA in Lubbock.
As both an architect and artist working in a busy architecture firm focused on modern design, it’s natural for my painting work to explore abstract principles. The statement that, “abstraction is the house style of modernism”, is very close to how much of contemporary art and architecture meet at this fertile crossroads of creativity.
My approach to painting is process driven using the mark making of random natural elements placed, poured or sprayed on the canvas combined with a thoughtful hard-edged application of drafted and painted geometric patterns. The relationship between the random and the geometric plays out across the canvas as an abstracted language of our contemporary tension with nature. Essentially, it’s an artist exploring questions about the way we make our marks on the landscape in both contemporary and historical contexts.
