About the Work
Flat areas of pure colours -- green,mauve, turquoise, pink, and yellow -- are superimposed with two ribbons of white, a gray oblong and two angular black chair shapes. While the image is suggestive of chairs on a rug, the piece plays with space, flattening it and hinting at foreground or background through overlapping shapes. Hill works in the late modernist traditions of concept and minimalism emphasizing the viewer's participation in the work. Hill obtained a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the Alberta College of Art and Design and his MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2006. He has exhibited across Canada and in Dubai.
