About Purple and Magenta 1 & 2

Aron Hill loves playing with colour and form to create fun, contemporary paintings. This is one of a series where Hill uses two shaped panels in white as backdrops to colourful organic shapes rendered in purple, black, lime green and magenta. Fine bright yellow lines shot through the centers add interest. The entire piece is rimmed in a reflective gold leaf. Hill's work is reminiscent of the shaped color field paintings of American painter Ellsworth Kelly.

“The idea of pureness in terms of colour and shape and that hard edge has always appealed to me.” 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.
