The Agora Gallery (530 West 25th Street, Chelsea, New York, NY, 10001) is proud to present James Christopher Hill in Contemporary Perspectives. Scheduled to run from January 30th through February 19th, the collection will feature a captivating selection of James Christopher Hill's breathtaking skyscapes.

About James Christopher Hill:

James Christopher Hill's vibrant visions of the dramatic sky portray natural scenes of such astounding beauty that they simply defy description through words. Hill's breathtaking skyscapes serve as metaphors for emotions and memories of precise moments in his life and are imbued with an underlying spirituality. The artist, who poignantly understands the fragility of life, uses his paintings to capture fleeting moments, preserving them forever with lush oil paints in a resounding spectrum of vivid colors. In fact, color plays a primary role in the artist's perception and memory and therefore it becomes the centerpiece of his dynamic, swirling paintings. Since 2001, many of Hill's skyscapes deal with the topic of global climate change and through their powerful beauty encourage environmental awareness and conservation.

James Christopher Hill has painted traditionally, exploring the realms of portraiture and realism, since age twelve, but began painting skyscapes upon graduating with honors from the Ringling School of Art in Design in Sarasota, Florida. He lives and works in North Charleston, South Carolina.

About Contemporary Perspectives- Exciting works of sculpture, painting, digital art, and drawing are brought together to survey the state of contemporary art. The artists included in Contemporary Perspectives have traversed very distinctive avenues of creativity. Yet this group remains unified in a common spirit of optimism and a determined belief in the power of art. The works explore both our modern civilization and its pastoral roots through slick abstractions and stunning photorealism.
