Art

Hillary Serota Needle is a contemporary realist painter based in Long Island, NY, whose work in oils is reflective of still life, architecture, flora, landscape and street scenes that she’s photographed in her travels. As inspired as she is by a change of scenery, the beauty of Long Island offers unsurpassed opportunities to create. The serenity of the East End, whether it’s on one of the undulating sea shores or in a bright lavender field, brings her to the canvas. Butterflies and birds take sanctuary in her backyard and she’s delighted to capture a moment of stillness amidst the frenetic flapping of wings. She has attracted collectors across the country and her work has appeared in numerous shows and juried exhibitions. She is an active member of the Huntington Arts Council, Art League of Long Island, LIMArts, and the Smithtown Arts Council.

Artist Statement
Drawing inspiration and direction from my photographs, I trained myself to see what I’m looking at. By breaking down an image into shadows, light, movement and color, I discovered the ability to breathe life into something of one dimension. I especially enjoy isolating an up-close perspective on glass, water reflections and flowers. It’s the patterns and complexities found in everyday moments that continue to amaze and delight – nature’s formula for the creation of something unique, imperfect and random.
