About The Artwork

The Tempest - This was a large centerpiece of what I foresaw in our future of vast and powerful storms and what we go through in life. This painting is an awesome homage to God and the power and wrath God can bring when prompted to do so. Inspired by 19th painter John Martin's "The Great Day of His Wrath", I wanted to create a giant painting that is both beautiful and terrifying to look at as a reminder we are but dust in the wind compared to the power of God, God's Universe and God's Nature and Beauty we are destroying.

James Christopher Hill Artist Biography Born in Charleston, South Carolina, James Christopher Hill, has gained international notoriety for his paintings by his collectors and viewers. He is best known for painting his landscapes and skyscapes filled with vibrant color, swift movement and radiant energy in a contemporary stylistic language. His work explores the use of color and rhythm to create powerful, sweeping images that seek to provoke a particular mood or emotion by capturing an exact moment or memory in time that is meaningful to both him and the viewer. As a professional artist in his early twenties including owning his own art gallery in downtown Charleston, James decided to acquire formal training at the prestigious Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. In 1998, he graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Animation; a field that while at Ringling, focused mainly on the understanding and discipline of master drawing and painting skills. His senior thesis entitled "Jataka" took home the Gold Oscar in the category of Best Student Computer Animation in 1998 from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1999, James returned to the discipline of fine art and his work has been shown in numerous galleries in the Southeast and he has recently had two gallery openings in Manhattan, New York where his work was well received. He has won numerous awards in both fine art and computer animation including the AVA, Telly and the Aurora. He has served as vice-chair for both city art councils and art guilds in Charleston. In 2007, he created and published his first art book entitled Skyscapes and Landscapes. Since 2005, he has curated several shows with over 30 artists and is now showcasing his works as and exhibitor at Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions including DragonCon, Megacon, Heroes Con, ConCarolinas and ConTemporal 2011, a steampunk convention where he was the featured artist for the show. James has been developing a growing number of private and commercial collectors throughout the United States and the world. His work has been profiled on various articles, magazines and television shows. Still, James works every day to try to expand his knowledge and his talents through the study of the great masters of art throughout the ages.
