1961 Padre ISLAND, United States

Thematically poetic, and subtlety narrative in content, his art  is a visual journey often featuring feminine figures, flocks of birds, and the exotic fauna of an imagined environment he invites his audience to explore. He focuses on color, composition, contrasts of moods, and flowing line work. The most captivating parts of his works are peripheral details from Art History, elements of folk art, looping graphic lines, kinetic scribbling, Asian calligraphy, African motifs and Pop culture.

His art is an invitation to take a break from the everyday and join him for a walk along the paths meandering through his colorful world.

 

Biography

Skip Hill was born in 1961 in Padre Island, Texas but grew up primarily in Oklahoma City. After attending Oklahoma City University to study Advertising and Marketing, he worked as a graphic designer before relocating in 1987 to Southern California.  A two-week trip to Thailand in 1989 turned into a year traveling throughout Southeast Asia while writing for a business magazine based in Bangkok.

In 1990 Skip Hill relocated to the Netherlands, immersing himself in the culture and learning the Dutch language. His frequent visits the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam as well as the BoijmanVan Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, sparked Hill’s interest in creating art inspired by aesthetic concerns over the strictly commercial art he produced during his advertising career. It was during this time abroad that he traveled through Germany, Czechoslovakia and Morocco.

After returning to Oklahoma in 1993, Skip Hill studied formally at The University of Oklahoma with conceptual artist HachiviEdgar Heap of Birds, and influential abstract painter George Bogart. After his studies, Hill established studios in Oklahoma City and Norman, Oklahoma with the goal of creating an audience for his artwork within his home state and beyond. He made it a personal mission to engage and inspire children with his love for art while working as an  Artist In Residence in public schools. Hill acquired a growing number of collectors from around the country while exhibiting his work at art fairs in Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas. During this prolific period, Skip Hill’s original painting ‘The Dream Sower’ was inducted into the Oklahoma State Art Collection by the Oklahoma Arts Council in 2014.

In the years since, Skip Hill’s art has been exhibited throughout the state in cultural institutions and galleries that include Oklahoma Contemporary, Fred Jones Museum of Art, The Betty Price Gallery at the Oklahoma State Capitol, Gaylord-Pickens Museum, Goddard Art Center, Artspace at Untitled, Living Arts Tulsa, 108 Contemporary, JRB Art at the Elms Gallery, MainsiteGallery and Kinfolk House. In 2022 The Philbrook Museum in Tulsa acquired two of Skip Hill’s artworks for their collection.
