About Black and Pink Without a Yellow Sun

Aron Hill’s canvases are drenched in bright colours; their bold, dynamic form is almost sculptural. In this piece, the Calgary artist uses circles, semi-circles, and elegantly curved lines to create a contemporary composition. The colour palette is vivid—pink, orange, blue, yellow and black against a white canvas. Inspired by the form and colour of the French 20th century artist Henri Matisse and the Canadian modernist Jack Bush, Hill’s engaging art is figurative—albeit both abstracted and minimalist.

“The idea of pureness in terms of colour and shape and that hard edge has always appealed.” 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.
