Hilary Doyle 

Hilary Doyle is an artist, teacher, and curator based in Worcester, MA, USA, where she was born and raised. Through a multi-media practice that encompasses painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, Doyle contemplates the daily rituals of everyday life and explores psychology, gender, and emotion. 

Doyle finds her inspiration in public spaces, observing passers-by, fellow commuters on the subway, and patients in waiting rooms. Doyle exposes shared universal experiences by drawing attention to everyday life, capturing what she sees with sketches, iPhone drawings, videos, and sculptural models, which later become paintings. Whilst Doyle’s artistic output is diverse and varied, it is united by simplified, rounded forms and confident, fluid mark-making. Doyle explains her style: “I experiment to discover relevant marks for each subject: a quick mark for the view out a window of a speeding bus, or a flat mark for tiles on the wall of a subway station.” Doyle’s work has been exhibited in galleries in London, New York, Shanghai, New Jersey, and Brown University, and is part of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection. Doyle has been featured in Hyperallergic, Bushwick Daily, and New American Paintings Blog. Co-founder of the NYC Crit Club, Doyle currently teaches at Rhode Island School of Design and co-directs the Transmitter Gallery.
