Bronwyn Hill’s recent collection of oil paintings explore an interplay between various fruit and winged insects when the two subjects are placed together. The work focuses on the vibrancy of the contrasting colours and the different textures of these objects, composing them in a way that is both natural and artificial. The use of minimal grey backgrounds keeps the attention on the exaggerated colours, a fun diversion from the personal work in Hill’s other series.
Brisbane-based, Hill is recognised for her photo-real oil paintings, with light and shadow a recurring feature along with her use of contrast of high detail and soft layering techniques.
Recently winning the 2019 Sylvia Jones Award for Women Artists at the Brisbane Portrait Prize, and the 2017 Clayton Utz Award, Bronwyn Hill has been involved in many exhibitions throughout Australia, most recently exhibiting in Melbourne and internationally in 2020 as part of a group show at CODA Gallery, Palm Desert, California, USA.
Bronwyn Hill is currently exhibiting in a group show ‘Moments: A Still Life Exhibition’ at Lethbridge Gallery Paddington from 28 May to 12 June 2021. All works can viewed at www.lethbridgegallery.com
