‘Origin’ is a Silkscreen 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.
‘Origin’ treads the line between abstract and figurative, loosely depicting a woman, her hands poised in religious gesture, her face a haunting pattern of three eyes, surrounded by a halo-like disc. The image centres around a black and white diamond shape, bordered by beautifully etched foliage. The mix of stark monochrome and kaleidoscopic composition is breathtaking and powerful: a compelling work of contemporary art.
