George Hill

George Hill

George Hill (b.1982-) is a contemporary realist painter based out of SW Montana. His representations of wildlife and fish attempt to push the realms of both realism and expressionism. He composes his paintings mostly in the style of portraiture to emote in the viewer a strong sense of reverence for the subject. Yet his works are far from traditional.      Through loose, at times impressionistic application of paint, Hill is able to breathe emotion and life into his subject. Blending realism with expressive abstract elements produces a uniquely engaging and emotive experience for viewers of his work. 

Hill’s choice of subject matter is very much influenced by his affinity for wilderness areas and the creatures that reside within them. He is an avid outdoorsman and fly fisherman. Hill spent several years as a young man pursuing large trout in Patagonia, Argentina with his fly rod. These years were profoundly influential for the artist and his work. With each portrayal on canvas, Hill hopes to raise a sense of importance and awareness for these creatures as their health is indicative of strong flourishing ecosystems and wilderness spaces. 

Hill’s works are represented by galleries across the Northern Rocky range. In a relatively short period of time he has amassed a strong collector base often comprised of avid outdoors people such as himself. They too share the same reverence and appreciation for wild creatures and the spaces they inhabit that he does. An exhibitor in the Charlie Russell Art Show in Great Falls, MT, in late March 2019, Hill is also featured in the Artist of the West column in the Big Sky Journal Fly Fishing 2019 issue. 

His work can be seen at The Dana Gallery of Missoula, MT, and Horizon Fine Art Gallery of Jackson, WY.
