American, b. 1974

Megan Hinton is a painter known for reconfiguring genres of landscape, figurative, and object painting.  Her art utilizes appropriation from painting’s history along with found and discarded material to investigate line, color, shape, surface, and scale. This fusion of subject and formalism spans further to her work in collage, sculpture, installation, photography, and performance.  Megan holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from Mills College where she won the Hung Lui Painting Prize. She has received residency fellowships from Twenty Summers in Provincetown and The Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium. She is the recent recipient of the Alice C. Cole ‘42 Merit Grant from Wellesley College. Megan is also an art educator, curator, and writer.
