- Artist Biography
Dan Hillier has developed a unique style, combining Victorian sensibilities with a fascination for animal attributes. His work is characterized by depictions of fantastical human/animal hybrids, spliced together with late-1800s imagery.
Hillier’s beautiful, classically rooted images find their power in their unsettling effect, as they seamlessly blur distinctions normally implied by reality. The artist’s previous exhibitions include shows at the Saatchi gallery, the ICA and more recently, The Louvre.
Dan Hillier first experimented with foil block for his sell-out editions ‘Father & Son -Bronzeage’ and subsequent ‘Stag -Bronzeage’ artwork. He has most recently used this magical mode of printing for his forthcoming ‘Suit’ & ‘Falls’ editions.
This metallic detail is added to each artwork via the creation of a custom made metal die. A metallic foil is then laid across the surface and embossed at heat into the paper stock, creating a fantastic level of detail which is indented into the artwork itself.
