Studio Seven Arts is presenting a new figurative art exhibition featuring Hines.His latest collection of figurative paintings, the Totems collection, represents an allegorical aspect of paintings providing a deeper meaning.
Recognized throughout the nation and the San Francisco Bay Area, Hines will be present live in the gallery for a special opening reception on Saturday Oct. 6th, Hines will be present from 11:00am to 2:00pm to display, discuss and perform his painting. Paintings will be on display in the gallery from October 5 through November 5.
Hines offers insight into the inspiration for Totems and his journey in art to surrealism:
“After doing mostly abstracts for 12 years, I was missing the component of renderings on canvas which I felt needed to be incorporated into paintings with objects and figures. I use the figure in an allegorical context. So I found that surrealism and the various artists painting in that fashion interested me and I drifted into that direction.
The Totem paintings are vertical and stack on to one another. They have an incongruous trait to them that is true to a more creative view of time and space.
