Hilary Dancer

A contemporary artist working in acrylic, oil & mixed media

From her studio in Hampshire, Hilary uses a vibrant palette to produce a variety of impressionistic, almost abstract paintings, and is perhaps best known for her romantic figures and atmospheric cityscapes. She enjoys experimenting with colour, texture and materials in the pursuit of exciting new work.

Hilary can be inspired by a single image, a piece of music, or a fleeting moment in time, but she always looks to capture the essence of the scene, portraying what is felt along with what is seen. Her paintings usually evolve along the way as she tries to balance composition with drama while leaving some details understated, so enticing the viewer to engage with the painting.

The expressive nature of her work comes from a desire to capture the spirit and spark of a place ultimately leaving the viewer to define and explain the scene. The colours she chooses can be at odds with the scene, and the marks are close to abstraction, but the finished work suggests a mood, perhaps a place you may know and wish to return.
