Andrew Hill is an artist specialising in ceramic sculptural forms, focussing on emotional responses and interactions which encourages the observer to imagine past, present and future conversations between the figures and imagined others. The meanings behind the sculptures can be perceived to have both dark and light connotations, often containing fun, love, anxiety, sexual tension, anger, but always drama within their sensitive expressions, form and posture.
