The Art of Billy Hassell

December 17 2010 - February 06 2011
Artist Reception January 28, 7:00 pm

Billy Hassell reinvents the American landscape with his colorful interpretations of the Southwest. Recognized for his bold use of shape and imaginative renditions of plants and animals, this Texas native has made a career of painting the flora and fauna indigenous to this region of the country. Panoramic landscapes and iconic, patterning forms of painting characterize Hassell's style. Oils on canvas, watercolors and a new suite of small format color etchings created at Austin's Flatbed Press are current examples of his work. Hassell's love of nature is evident in every artwork he creates. The bold scale of his primary subject, birds in nature, are superimposed on a stylized landscape. His vibrant use of color continues to be a recognized characteristic of Hassell's art.
