Justine Hill Biography

Born in 1985, in Tarrytown, New York, Justine Hill makes abstract paintings using elemental marks and shapes that are distinguished by colour, value, and opacity. She works by adding layers, which while physical and permanent, allude in form and opacity to digital painting tools. She works in both a traditional rectangular painting format and in sculptural, shaped canvases she calls ʻCutoutsʼ, reminiscent of Elizabeth Murray. Justine Hill received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and her BA from the College of the Holy Cross. Hill’s most recent exhibitions include ‘Breaking the Frame’ at Hollis Taggart in New York (2019) ‘Bookends’ at David B. Smith Gallery in Denver (2019), ‘Backdrops’ at Art-in-Buildings in New York (2019), ‘Freestanding’ at Denny Gallery (2018), and ‘Movers and Shapers’ with Ali Silverstein at Victori + Mo in Brooklyn (2018). Her work is in significant collections including The Davis Museum (Wellesley, MA) and The Columbus Metropolitan Library (Columbus, OH). Her work has been reviewed or featured in Art in America, Hyperallergic, New York Magazine, The Observer, The Huffington Post, The Art Newspaper, Artsy, Artspace, and Two Coats of Paint.
