‘Daybreak’ is a Giclée Print by digital collage artist Dan Hillier. From a limited edition of 25, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Dan Hillier merges the old with the new to exquisite effect. Trawling through scraps of Victoriana - from wood cuts to etchings, engravings and anatomical drawings - Hillier layers the up pieces from the past in a digital collage process, producing an entirely unique aesthetic that treads the line somewhere between surrealism and neo-Victoriana.
‘Daybreak’ is a beautiful piece of abstract etching work, striking in its greyscale simplicity. Like the view through a kaleidoscope, geometric patterns overlap and intersect in perfect symmetry, to create a circular shape in tones of white and bleached-out ice-grey. The final result is compelling: a powerful and haunting work of contemporary art.
