Now painting for over 20 years, Hilario’s works have become immensely popular nation wide and this is his fourth solo exhibition with the gallery in Santa Fe.
The show includes 11 new works completed in 2018, showcasing the artist’s characteristic expertise using color, subtlety, and nuance to tell stories of emotion. “When I took my first steps as an artist I was traveling along an unknown emotional road; ahidden back road to inspiration. Now I revisit the old back roads where I have been as way to measure my accomplishments then add to them. But it isn’t just about my accomplishments rather, it is about what I love doing. I love creating an atmosphere of story that hides in the canvas. I love creating a title for a painting that helps in finding the story. I love exploring earthy, organic colors and textures to provoke an emotional response. This is why I paint.”
