Hillary Babick (She/Her)
Hillary Babick (b.1989, Dallas, Texas) is a Boston based painter. She received her BFA from Boston University in 2011 and the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston recognized her as a 2021 finalist for the Walter Feldman Emerging Artist Fellowship. Her oil and gouache paintings of friends, family, and strangers from instagram explore private vs. public personas and daily life. She is interested in how we behave when no one is watching and when we know we are being watched. Taking inspiration from genre painting and social media, she explores moments that deserve closer consideration and presses pause on rapid media consumption to examine our motivations and beauty in the everyday. Her work is held in private collections across the country.
