Anna Hill

An exhibition of recent paintings

Date: Aug 11 – Aug 24Space: Small Gallery

Anna Hill’s work is a combination of contemporary painting with an exploration of texture and colour;

“I decided to paint landscapes from driving around Hawkes Bay and admiring the beautiful views. Also my mother passed away quite suddenly from cancer and I needed something to focus on art makes good therapy.”

Anna set herself realistic goals that a mother with two children could achieve. Art provides Anna with her ‘happy place’ and  it doesn’t take much for her to become motivated.

As an artist who is just starting out, Anna can’t place her style as yet, there is still so much for her to explore. When she started her project, the aim was simply to paint to see what she could paint; “I think that I paint my vision is of the landscape, not a representation of exactly how it is seen…but my own interpretation.”

Anna names New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell as an important influence in her work. She particularly enjoys the playfulness, and the personality in his work. She also is inspired by Bill Hammond’s work and the mystical narratives evident in his paintings.

It is intriguing to know where Anna will go next! Come along to Anna’s exhibition and support this local emerging artist in her venture.
All are welcome to attend Anna’s opening event on Friday 11 August 5-7pm.
