Becalm

Becalm is defined as a ship moored by the stillness of the wind. This series is a meditation of contrast, the churning of water and tranquility of mind. Each Becalm is a reaction and reflection of current events and inward struggles rather than being a physical place. The accompanying insects can be treated as a separate painting, adding a layer of anxiety, complexity, or fortitude to the calming sea and becalmed mind.

This series takes the small things in life that delight and annoy and places them out of context in order to reveal their true nature. Each painting utilizes the raw beauty of linen and wood as a means to bring life into the objects represented.

Who determines what a weed is? Taxonomically, the term "weed" has no botanical significance, because a plant that is a weed in one context is not a weed when growing in a situation where it is in fact wanted.

This series uses the traditional practice of screen printing on a small scale as a means to adapt it for guerrilla graffiti. This small rebellion and merging of artistic styles could only be noticed by those who took the time to look.

Temporary

This series examines the beauty in the breakdown by utilizing the deteriorating effects of oil paint on unprimed canvas. By painting pieces that are not built to last but to age with their subject matter the artist calls in to question the human desire of being remembered through objects, monuments, and graves. The beauty and beneficial qualities of decay bring new meaning to mortality.

Bio

Hillary Dohoney is from Fort Worth, Texas. She has a BA in Studio Art and Art History at Trinity University. She received Trinity University's Excellence in Art Award upon graduation.

Hillary has been a finalist in the Hunting Art Prize. Conversant in French, she studied abroad in Paris where she was a docent at the Musée d’Orsay and an official copyist of the Louvre.

Mainly working in oils, she takes the classical approach of trompe l’œil to render unconventional entities. Her work has been exhibited in Paris, Arkansas, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and Fort Worth.

Statement

Hillary's intent is to reveal the human bias present in everyday thinking. Working primarily in oil paint she pushes the medium to its limits of subtlety to represent the commonplace, the underrepresented, and misunderstood. Hillary predominantly tackles the innately human notion that everything on earth is for our use. The formal context of a gallery changes her subject matter's significance causing the perception each entity to shift enabling the audience to question their previous ideology of the things as unworthy.
