About Skip Hill:
«Skip Hill creates lyrical collage paintings and drawings that weave a rich tapestry of aesthetic styles, languages and philosophies rooted in cultures around the world. Embracing the African-influenced modernist idiom, Hill explores patterns, images and forms drawn from cultural sources as diverse as comic books, outsider folk art, tribal textiles, Japanese Ukiyo-e prints, Asian calligraphy, graffiti, and Art History to produce his art. His iconic collage paintings of crying prophets, haiku divas, ghetto geishas, dancing bulls ornately adorned elephants are directly influenced by his years spent living in Thailand and the Netherlands and traveling to exotic places around the world, as well of his deep studies of Religion, Art History and the African-American experience. Although primarily a self-taught artist, Hill has studied under the Native American conceptual artist, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, and abstract painter George Bogart, at the University of Oklahoma. He has participated in several solo and museum group shows and curated and created an installation for the exhibition “Casting Stones” at the Ford Jones Museum of Art.»- JRB Art at the Elms
