Decoration Day | a solo exhibition by Hannah Hill
April 2 – May 4, 2012
MICA’s Gateway Gallery 2
1601 W Mt Royal Ave, Baltimore MD, 21217

In this series, Hill presents paintings that trace a specific understanding of loss within American Southern culture. In towering works involving space, image and text, Hill considers not only the loss of loved ones, but the space between people, relationships and memories.

Hill explores the Southern acceptance of death and bereavement within six large-scale oil paintings. While some are placed conventionally on the wall others begin to peek over it, divide into parts, lean against a wall and exist within narrow windowsills.

Hannah Hill was born in the small town of Gadsden, Alabama in 1990. She studied at both the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and the Burren College of Art in Ireland, graduating with a BFA in General Fine Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. Her art has been shown in the Vulcan Materials Gallery in Birmingham Alabama, Area 405 in Baltimore and in the Newtown Castle Gallery in Ballyvaughan Ireland and is included the private collection of Kevin Kavanagh Gallery in Dublin and the Timmons Collection in London. She currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
