ARON HILL

ARON HILL Aron Hill currently lives and works in Calgary, Alberta. He graduated from Alberta College of Art and Design in 2000 with a BFA in Interdisciplinary studies. He then completed his MFA at Goldsmiths College, University of London. From there, his work evolved into installation-based projects using traditional drawing and painting methods alongside formal sculptural elements, large format photography and text based work.

Hill’s recent work has been focused on formalist paintings that recall aspects of minimalism as his color field paintings reference the figure throughout. He finds conceptual company in late Modernist paintings, particularly those produced in Canada. The use of a restricted medium—acrylic ink washes on prepared raw canvas—forces restraint. The work's graphic nature relies on the sheer flatness this medium produces.

Aron has exhibited internationally, occasionally lectures, and writes.
