In their painting, Aron Hill (b. 1977, Calgary, AB) finds conceptual company in the late Modernist work of Jack Bush and William Perehudoff. Hill uses bright flat colors on prepared raw canvas to create enigmatic hard-edged shapes in playful narratives. They infuse the restrained space of the minimalist canvas with dynamic forms shifting easily out of abstraction to create designed landscapes and enigmatic still life paintings.
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. They have exhibited across Canada and in Dubai. Their work is held in private and corporate collections.
