About the Work
A large, organic black shape interrupted by two oblongs, yellow and white, sits atop a rainbow of coral pink, cerise, rust-orange, bright yellow, green and sky blue that hugs another white oblong. This acrylic painting on canvas plays with space, flattening it and hinting at foreground or background through overlapping shapes. Aron Hill's paintings consist of layers of acrylic ink washes on clear primed raw canvas. Hill's practice is focused on a formalist type of painting that recalls aspects of minimalism and color field painting. He finds conceptual company in the late Modernist paintings produced particularly in Canada. The choice of a primary colors and restricted medium, is a conscious restraint informed by Hill’s artistic influences such as Jack Bush and William Perehudoff. 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.
