About Me:
Molly Hill hails from Fenton, Mo (a suburb of St. Louis). She has had an interest in art since a young age. Attending the Kansas City Art Institute and graduating in 2001 with a BFA in illustration and design only furthered her interest in it. Molly is proficient in several 2d mediums : Pencil, pen and ink, marker, oil and acrylic paint, airbrush, automotive graphics, and pinstriping. She has also taken her talents to the virtual using illustrator, photoshop and blender imaging programs. She also has dabbled in sculpture and ceramics. She has technical ability in automotive bodywork and painting, also upholstery and industrial sewing. Currently she has been making mixed media pieces on canvas using everything from spray paint to car parts. Molly's work has appeared in DUB magazine, Car Craft magazine, and at the St. Louis Mardi Gras (2005).
If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
This style artwork started out rather simply and for a practical purpose.. to get rid of a horde of cheap spray paint filling the garage cabinet, beyond that a creative free flowing fun outlet. A stress reliever that didn't have alcohol, although the consumption of such at the same time has never been out of the question. My day job in the business jet industry is obviously very technical. Although I get to use my creativity there bright colors and whimsical themes are out of the question. Unless it's a Gulfstream that happens to be owned by spongebob. Besides absolutely loving bright saturated colors, culture and the idioms attached are subject of study in these pieces. Specifically trends, concepts that would otherwise be considered silly end up being the in thing (cat videos and cat everything for that matter). Stereotypes and atypical Idioms are explored in the art as well, mostly historical or cultural, and irony with it. A pony for a girl in the modern era would likely be a Ford Mustang! Many phrases used today originate before the industrial revolution or refer to fables hundreds of years old. Not all pieces created are weighed with such introspection. American Pharoah was the first triple crown winner in 35 years. Not only commemorating a great horse, It was the perfect setting for a painted faux floral idea. Each flower represents the 3 tracks of the triple crown races. After all sometimes an artist wishes to create for the sake of it! Although the subject matter speaks to trends the technique and application are obtuse to what is currently trending in the art world. Not following a trend may make it harder to get noticed as you are not creating something that's "hot" . That said, don't trends start with something out of the ordinary or previously forgotten? Or as mentioned before in some cases something purely entertaining and ridiculous? The application is a sum of past technical experience with airbrushing, custom automotive painting, pen and ink, oil painting and various other mediums and skills. Also influenced by the look of etching and woodcut art, namely that of Albrecht Duer. A modern paint marker version dovetails with the historic nuance. Conveying to the viewer aspects of culture and history in a visual commentary gives the pieces intellectual depth, however. The making of the art, experimenting with different materials and techniques and just making a big mess in general is the most fun of all, even if it's alcohol induced after a long day at the office, or hangar in my case.
