Robert Hite

Hite was born in 1956 and spent childhood just outside of Bowling Green, a small town in rural Virginia. During his formative youth, Hite traveled in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and South America. He spent a stint as a studio assistant for the Washington Color School painter Leon Berkowitz, and enjoyed success in the eighties and early nineties as an abstract landscape artist in Washington, DC.Hite was born in 1956 and spent childhood just outside of Bowling Green, a small town in rural Virginia.

Hite has shown his work widely, most notably in a solo show at The Nassau County Museum “Imagined Histories” May thru Sept, 2011.

Though his work deals in abstraction, images of structures, dwellings, and living spaces have become central to his pieces. Hite now works in photography, painting, and sculpture, although they often intersect through common imagery and sentiment. In 1997, Hite and his family moved to Esopus, NY, a small town in the Hudson Valley where he converted a 1840’s Methodist church into his home and studio. There he has created a productive artistic space for himself, and sometimes others.
