The intricate line work found in Dan Hillier’s work, diverse as ever in recent drawings and collages, tells of his love of art history. The artist’s process combines ink work, digital collage and rendering, and further embellishments results in chimeric creations. Hillier was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Nearly all of my work is figurative and comprises totemic or iconographical combinations of human, animal, plant and mineral forms,” the artist says. “The subjects are generally set in blank spaces devoid of context. The characters in my pictures display an emblematic composite of human and non-human attributes, drawing on, but rarely literally depicting, ancient mythological beings, Victorian freak-shows, dream imagery, religious iconography and subconscious inspiration, whilst promoting a sense of transformation, repression, transcendence and evolution.”
