“Hindsight” is a series begun in 2001 based on her daily walks with her two dogs followed by a painting session. This work represents selected pieces from Ms. Hamilton’s solo show “Hindsight” which was on exhibition at the Renaissance Arts Center Main Gallery in the month of May 2015.
The artist states, “You’ll never see your morning walks the same. The walk is a ritual that all dog walkers share. The dogs I painted represented reality, they were moving forward in time, yet the space surrounding them is surreal and became a fanciful representation of my understanding of the world I see in my mind. Color and lines become sounds and smells and emotional responses to daily bombardments and person inner turmoil. The dogs were guides. The two-dimensional works are painted with oil and acrylic on various surfaces from canvas to illustration board to wood.”
