Monster paintings by Amy Hill

From the Roq La Rue gallery website:

"Amy Hill paints with a notoriously difficult Dutch Renaissance technique, using formality in the execution and opting for non-conventionality in her subject matter. In her newest series, Amy has painted a series of classic movie monsters as businessmen in suits. Earthy, luminous portraits are painted in tones perfect for the discriminating boardroom, as repulsive monsters are lovingly painted and renamed with 'normal' societially accepted names. Funny, yet thought provoking, the initial assumption of 'businessmen as monsters' begins to expand as the viewer considers what the artist might actually be implying."
