"I work primarily metal, wood, and collage, creating site specific art for public and private settings."
Hilary Pfeifer’s artwork explores the natural world through sculpture, collage and installation, often using reclaimed wood, laser cut metal and subtly camouflaged found objects. Her recent collage work is made by hand-cutting hundreds of elements to create a dense composition. A 5th generation Oregonian, Hilary graduated from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 1999. Her work has been featured numerous times in American Craft Magazine, and is in the collections of the State of Oregon, The Center for Art in Wood, Oregon Health Sciences University, and the White House. In addition to her studio practice, Hilary has also created many permanent public art works, including the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, the Randall Children’s Hospital, and The Ronald McDonald House, among others.
