‘Undreamt XL’ is a Silkscreen Print by digital collage artist Dan Hillier. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Soft White Textured Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and 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.
‘Undreamt XL’ treads the delicate line between figurative and abstract: a body rises from a mound of draped fabric, breaking in two as it does, to create an uncanny doubling. An elaborate tree sprouts from the head of one body while the other - its eyeless mask peering into the distance - clutches another copy of its own face in its hand. Filled with Freudian undertone, ‘Undreamt’ is a haunting masterpiece in monochrome.
