About Collaged Geometric Disc Mobile

Dynamic and whimsical, Aron Hill’s mobile is a joyful contemporary kinetic sculpture. Three separate discs are covered in a curated collage of shapes and brilliant colours. The colour profile here is Hill’s characteristically vivid palette-- orange, yellow, blue, red, and green punctuated by black and white. Delicately balanced, the sculpture moves in the air redefining the space and affording the viewer a fresh ‘view’.

Mobiles have existed for millennia—at first as windchimes, then re-imagined by Russian sculptors in the early 20th century and finally popularized as an art form by the American sculptor Alexander Calder in the 1930’s. The word ‘mobile’ is a French pun meaning both mobile and motive.

“The mobiles being both 2D and 3D and with the added potential for movement have a playful nature to them. The process of collaging is also more intuitive than merely relying on a formal painting process.” 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.
