Aaron Hill: In Pursuit of Nowhere

17th March - 15th April

Side Gallery

Aaron Hill’s work hovers in a space between creation and destruction.

It teaches us to be present in the fragile space between dichotomies—expansion and contraction, light and dark, physical and emotional, and ultimately life and death—reminding us that power and clarity can be found in the acceptance of this fragility.

Like an image of a melting frame of celluloid, the works are artifacts from a moment in time; the sequence of life outside each frame being much larger than what is captured.

About the Artist

Aaron Hill is a Brisbane based visual artist working primarily in drawing and painting, with a background in lithographic printmaking. He is also an educator, illustrator and writer, as well as co-director of design studio, Storkhorse.

Aaron’s most recent work shows a distinct departure from the figurative style for which he is known. Applying his extensive drawing prowess to depicting the realms of intangible experience, his current work moves into powerful new heights of the abstract, resulting in a calming, nature based aesthetic.
