Testimonials

William Hinsch has been painting professionally for more than three decades. Much of his work consists of portraits, including many self-portraits, friends, family aviation pioneers, and celebrities. He specializes in oil paintings and drawings in pencil, charcoal, and mixed media. Bill’s images invite you into his subjects daily lives. Luscious meaty brushwork and subtle shadings keep you riveted to his unique way of seeing. Bill’s work has been described as sensuous, emotional, vital, and alive. Often they are introspective and very personal. His nudes are classic. His lighter work including caricatures shows a great insight into peoples quirks and characters— the truth that can’t be seen in photographs. Though his work is representational more often than not, abstract passages appear in his canvases adding a fresh contemporary feel to them, while still reminiscent of classical approaches to art. They are a fusion of the ideal and the informal caught in a moment.
