About Many marks with pink sun

A joyful bright pink sun sits in one corner of this bold new work by Aron Hill. The image of the sun, symbolic of a guiding light has always been central to the work of this Calgary-based artist. Hill’s recent minimalist artwork explores a more personal narrative reflective of their life as an artist, a writer and now a parent. The canvas is divided into three distinct rectangles—the sun, a black canvas, and the largest is filled with dozens of expressive markings.

“The many marks are indicators of time spent caring and time spent in separation all while a pink morning sun- the dawn- sets a new day, every day regardless of the night’s difficulties. The embroidered lines delineate these “pages” and scenes while also binding them together.” Aron Hill

Aron Hill obtained a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the Alberta College of Art and Design and an 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.
