Second Story Gallery presents the first solo exhibition by Patric Hill.
Pat's work centres around an interest in pushing the medium of Lithography. He has had extensive experience in traditional printmaking and believes that lithography has been perceived as simply a tool for other disciplines such as painting or sculpture.
In order to explore the possibilities of this medium he feels that artist must approach it with a more playful attitude. He utilizes the primitive methodology of establishing images by using everyday objects. The resistance he encounters when pushing these objects through the press is exciting. Pat believes that modern printmaking has become distanced from this hands-on approach.
Pat Hill graduated from the Alberta College of Art in 1987.
