About A light over a blue shape

Brilliant colours and bold form characterizes the compelling work of Aron Hill.
The Calgary based artist was influenced by the striking work of renowned modernist Jack Bush. In this acrylic piece, several simple shapes are stacked…the bright yellow sun-like shape at the top appears to descend into a swatch of blue, then red bordered by a base of orange. The effect is dramatic.

“The sun is a central element of my work. It serves as the guiding light to the layers of experience translated onto canvas.” Aron Hill

They obtained a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the Alberta College of Art and Design and their MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2006. They have exhibited across Canada and in Dubai. Hill’s work is held in private and corporate collections.
