Exhibition: Clinton Hill
This exhibition, organized by the museum's director, William U. Eiland, presents the works of Clinton Hill, a multitalented artist who was a Renaissance man of the abstract. Neither cubist, futurist, minimalist, abstractionist or constructivist, he was all at once. The exhibition constitutes a survey of his career, from printmaker to painter, from pulp-paper pioneer to lyrical wall constructions. He tried to marry plane and solid geometry through surface texture and color harmonies and was a determined abstractionist. If necessary, he shaved paper to give the illusion of absence or added paper pulp to produce ribbon-like curves, rigorous line and suggestive arcs. Hill's biographer Susan Larsen referred to his “effortless fluency” of craft, from which his distinctive visual vocabulary takes voice and which the works on view demonstrate.
The museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. (closed Monday).
This exhibition is sponsored by the Clinton Hill/Allen Tran Foundation, the W. Newton Morris Charitable Foundation and the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Art.
