William Hinson's work is essentially an interpretation of surface in the context of time, durability and character. The underpainting and surface markings provide a narrative that speaks to the spirit of structures that were once alive and producing. The paintings provide a sense of tribute, an acknowledgment of contribution and value. He explains, "The flesh, the tangible offer a reassurance to our being." Transformation and the trace of heritage are important acknowledgements. The artist is also involved in the resurrection and reinterpretation of found objects. The assemblage and composition of these forms are an extension of the values supported by the current body of paintings. Hinson received an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1991 and has held teaching positions at University of Memphis and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in addition to his alma mater. He has also been involved in numerous graphic design projects ranging from corporate identity and publications to signage and way finding.
