About the Work
From the foot of this intimately sized acrylic on canvas, an open, rounded blue line drawing framed in lemon yellow closes in on a sea blue and dynamically angled line. These elements are stamped over swooping and intersecting arched ribbons of flat color -- mauve, yellow, lime green, and turquoise. Here the artist plays with space, flattening it and hinting at foreground or background. The appearance of a small orange triangular shape that almost touches the curated arcs balances the composition. Hill works in the late modernist traditions of concept and minimalism emphasizing the viewer's participation in the work. 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. He has exhibited across Canada and in Dubai.
