Aron Hill's paintings consist of layers of acrylic ink washes on clear primed raw canvas. Hill's practice is focused on a formalist type of painting that recalls aspects of minimalism and color field paintings though with references to the figure throughout. He finds conceptual company in the late Modernist paintings produced particularly in Canada. The choice of primary colors and restricted medium, is a conscious restraint informed by Hill’s artistic influences such as Jack Bush and William Perehudoff. The work's graphic nature relies on the sheer flatness this medium produces.
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. Aron Hill has exhibited internationally, occasionally lectures, and writes.
