Artwalk Reception: Saturday September 16, 1-4 pm
ARON HILL is a multidisciplinary artist based in Calgary known for his minimalist approach to drawing, painting, and installation. His recent graphic paintings recall aspects of minimalism and colour field painting, finding conceptual company in the late Modernist works produced particularly in Canada. Using the figure as a departure point for his compositions, Hill purposefully limits his media to acrylic ink washes on prepared raw canvas, which emphasizes the flatness of the paint and produces an illustrative quality similar to drawing or printmaking.
Hill holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art + Design and MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London, and his work has been exhibited internationally.
