About The Artist

Artist Statement

The foundation for my work, whether representational or abstract, has always been beauty. Beauty is a state of mind that can be seen everywhere and in anything; the curve of a figure, the surface of an object or a bold stroke of color. Fluctuating between abstraction and realism allows me the full expression of my talents but also philosophical and aesthetic expression as well. Abstraction provides the opportunity for my artistic improvisation on canvas while representational painting allows me to focus on the more academic traditional disciplines of painting. Both forums help embrace and express my personal philosophies on life and love.

 

 

Biography

Hines, who’s name is legally one name only, was born and raised in New York City. He began as a pencil artist producing meticulous figurative and surrealistic renderings on paper. In 1994 while living in Atlanta Georgia he began exploring oil painting resulting in the creation of my figurative and erotic surrealistic works on canvas. In 2001 his work shifted towards abstraction, inspired by his need for greater expression and his study of the New York school of abstract expressionism. In 2003 Hines moved to the San Francisco Bay area and began regularly exhibiting his abstract works with The Artist Guild of San Francisco. 2012 marked his return to representational painting with works that displayed his love of the figure and his need for eclectic allegorical expression.

Hines teaches private and group classes in Acrylic Painting. Hines is a member of the International Guild of Realism, Portrait Society of America and The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art. He has also taught drawing and painting at San Quentin Prison through the William James Association. He is the former President and Treasurer of The Artists Guild of San Francisco. Hines lives in Sausalito, California with his wife Dinene and son Emmett.
