Artist Statement

Collage has attracted Hollis because of her perception that creating the art and the process of viewing the art is a similar experience. By using the trademark Divine Imagery Is Everywhere subscribes to a belief that ideas flow through her. She doesn’t claim them as something personal after they are executed, metaphysically speaking. Hollis studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. She also took post-graduate classes in the degree program at Atlanta College of Art, now known as AIGA SCAD, Atlanta. Hollis received a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. She is a member of Ceres Gallery in NYC and has exhibited in other galleries in NYC and Atlanta.

“An artist earns the right to call himself a creator only when he admits to himself that he is but an instrument.”

                                                                – Henry Miller

Hollis Hildebrand-Mills’ art is a reflection of what is going on in the world at the time of process. The internal structure of her work is derived from Renaissance paintings. Some symbolism comes from that era also. But these things are conscious. Like Henry Miller says, the subconscious is absorbing the space surrounding the act of creation and puts forth work, apart from what the conscious mind “knows.” The mystery of creation.

Her goal is to make paintings (or collages) that resonate with timeless art as well as reflect the time in which she is living. She gets her craft from being fortunate enough to have attended several excellent art schools. Moore College of Art and Design, where she earned a BFA and studied with photographer Dave Heath. She also took degree program post-graduate classes with Fred Gregory, a Joseph Albers disciple, who proofed Albers’ book on color. She studied classical drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and mentored with Peter Forakis, notable sculptor, founder of the Park Place group in NYC. Hollis exhibits in galleries around the country, particularly Atlanta and New York.

Hollis is represented by Ceres Gallery in New York.
