Bay Hill was born in Seattle and grew up in rural Wisconsin. He is currently an artist working in the San Francisco Bay Area and has shown work around the globe including Chicago, Oakland, Japan, Taiwan, China, Mexico and Colombia. Bay firmly grounds his visual art practice in his poetry - working to transfer his written creations into physical objects and paintings. Bay values the ability to be aware of reality, with all it’s challenges and cruelty, but have the mental flexibility to see beauty and playfulness in everyday objects and in doing so he regulary blurs the line between art and the mundane. While in residence at The Growlery, Bay will be working on an a series of paintings, scultures, and installations.
