About the Work
Large black organic, polygonal shape in black gesso on watercolour paper with a white illusory cutout at the bottom creates optical tension. The cutout may be viewed as either white flower petals entering the black or as a jagged black edge. 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. Unframed.
