About the Work
A flat, black scalloped shape cut through with a 'V' holds a concentric ringed sun in red and yellow and intersects with arced ribbons of blue, red and violet in this acrylic an ink painting on canvas. Here the artist plays with space, flattening it and hinting at foreground or background. The appearance of a white vertical at the foot of the picture plane completes the composition. 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.
