‘Padma’ 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.
‘Padma’ depicts a large, diamond shape, set against an inky black background and swathed with beautiful, kaleidoscopic patterns. Within the space of the diamond, Hillier has layered up ice-white, abstract images, while a pair of black, silhouetted hands poise themselves at the centre, their fingertips touching with mystic intent. A brilliant merging of antiquated imagery and contemporary processes, Hillier’s print is a masterpiece in monochrome.
