Suburban Still Life - Sculpture

John Hill

Series of work by John Hill for our 20th Anniversary exhibition.

"My current series of work centres around the geometric forms of suburban architecture and how these forms; squares, rectangles, cylinders, cubes, spheres, cones and their manipulation, form the iconography of our built worlds.

I have cut and shaped blocks of wood and simply arranged them so that together they become meaningful as urban landscapes.  Stylised trees and small ladders have also been included in these works.  These act as visual clues to help further embody meaning, with the trees connecting to the natural world and the ladders providing suggestions of habitation and scale."
