MICHAEL JOHN HILL — lives and works in the same town where he was raised: Brighton, Sussex in England. His talent and interest in art developed early in life, but his only formal training came during his primary years in school. Considered a self-taught artist, Hill's endless details in his traditional landscapes recall the style of the Old Masters.
Michael first began exhibiting in London's Green Park off Picadilly Street just north of Buckingham Palace. Hill continued showing his work in Green Park for 18 years, which is where he was first discovered by Marshall Field's London office. The retail giant purchased his paintings and sent them to Chicago; his American career and popularity prospered.
Michael blends the elements of air, water and earth to recapture the early morning mist and sunlight known to England. He contrasts highly detailed trees against foggy backgrounds. The end result is artwork that gracefully depicts serenity and peace. Some have even referred to the meditative quality of his work.
Michael uses a combination of oil and acrylic paint to achieve his signature effects. Careful selection of undertones and canvas add to the painting's atmosphere. The impressions of changing natural light can be seen throughout the day in his artwork. His collectors recommend hanging the paintings at eye level to best enjoy the daily transformation.
To the artist, his detailed trees depict people in his life. For example, a cluster of larger and smaller trees may represent a family. Many trees are painted with entwined limbs representing a loving couple. Ultimately, Michael Hill leaves it up to the viewers to draw from their own life and determine meaning in the painting.
