RMFA to present works by Andrew Hillman at the Public Library

5 Dimensional
July 14, 2023 - September 29, 2023
Reception: September 16, 2023 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to announce “5 Dimensional ”, an exhibition featuring a series of works by Andrew Hillman at the Rochester Public Library.

Andrew Hillman, a Bolivian-born artist, draws inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of his Inca roots and his love for art and music.

Throughout his life, Andrew has been deeply immersed in the world of music, honing his skills on four different instruments. However, it was later in life that he discovered art as a powerful tool for mental health and self-expression. Embracing art as his form of therapy, he found solace and healing through the creative process.

Andrew’s artistic style is characterized by his innovative use of materials. He has developed a particular affinity for using specific issues of National Geographic magazines as his medium for collage. With meticulous precision, he skillfully manipulates the magazine cutouts to create artwork that challenges the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional surfaces. His ultimate goal is to make the flat surface of his artworks pop out, bend, or assume an omnidirectional presence.

Andrew aspires to prove that art can be just as transformative as therapy. Through his work, he endeavors to showcase the profound emotional and psychological impact that art can have on individuals, especially those facing mental health challenges. With a deep passion for both art and music, Andrew aims to inspire others and demonstrate the immense power of creativity in healing and personal growth.

In every carefully placed collage element, Andrew weaves a narrative that pays homage to his heritage, while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of his artistic expression. With his unwavering dedication and commitment to his craft, Andrew continues to explore the profound connection between art, music, and mental well-being, leaving an indelible mark on the artistic landscape.

The exhibition will be on view from July 14, 2023, until September 29, 2023, with a reception planned for September 16, 2023, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The public is encouraged to attend. The Rochester Public Library is located at 65 South Main Street, Rochester, NH 03867. Visit andrewsartandmusic76 and www.rochestermfa.org to learn more.

The museum is sponsored by the City of Rochester, Rochester Main Street, Waterstone Properties Group, Bernier Insurance, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Creative Guts Podcast, and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
