Jeneese Hilton: Raven Reviewing Modern
Jeneese Hilton: Raven Reviewing Modern
St. Ignatius artist Jeneese Hilton is a painter's painter. Her lush canvases of expressively applied paint deftly capture light and color, form and content. The themes of her paintings are richly layered, drawing from myth, history, literature and spirituality, the personal and the communal. Imagery from her own Blackfeet tradition recurs, with creatures suggestive of Native American animism and sacredness, such as the horse, turtle, raven, bison, and bear. The fields of thick color and compelling forms invite the viewer to ponder and find meaning in the paintings.
