‘Field XL’ is a Screen Print by digital collage artist Dan Hillier. Printed onto 400gsm Somerset Soft White Textured Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 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.
‘Field XL’ is striking in its monochrome simplicity, a beautiful piece of abstract etching work. Like the view through a kaleidoscope, a gentle wash of intricate patterns slide across the surface of a large, black-ringed circle. It’s a gentle piece, but powerful in its intangible, haunting quality: a compelling work of contemporary art.
