Textual description of firstImageUrl

Luke Hillestad

I am a Minneapolis based figurative painter. I began painting in 2006 with Rembrandt and Caravaggio books open next to my empty canvas. Since then, I have worked to create paintings with themes that would be raw and enduring. My focus has been on narratives of birth, kinship, ritual, and healing. The most beautiful objects are paintings, and the most beautiful subjects should be painted.
