About Round Magenta with 2 Lines

This lively painting is by Calgary’s Aron Hill. Known for bright colours and bold form, Hill has rendered a polygon in deep magenta on a white tondo (circle) rimmed with glowing gold leaf against a black backdrop. This is one in a series of minimalist paintings that recalls the enigmatic work of the American abstract 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.
