About Figure with Cross like Cutout

Aron Hill’s colourful, abstract work often tells a story that invites the viewer in. Here the Calgary artist’s imagery suggests a cross, a sun and a road. Bold shapes are rendered in washes of pure colour—green, blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow and white offset against jet black. The artistic influences of modernist Jack Bush—minimal form and vivid colour is evident here.

“One of the interests for subject matter are religious themes. I grew up seeing a lot of this…this type of symbolism.” 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.
