Hilary Gaston has been recognised as a pioneer of Neo Pop painting in south Australia. Her subjects are predominantly women from media culture. she loves to play with patterns and textures, multi layering with a mixture of media, creating a dance on the surface that flickers between the 2D and 3D, the past, the present and the space in between.
Since earning a bachelor of Fine Art from the South Australian School of Art in 1991, she has exhibited her paintings frequently in Adelaide,Sydney and Melbourne and picked up many commissions olong the way. Her favourite subjects are pop goddesses, Devas, Temptresses and vamps
Portraiture is her passion, and she now works from her home studio on the south Fleurieu coast in Cape Jervis.
