Oliver Hill - Copy & Paste

Oliver Hill - Copy & Paste

We look to promote and celebrate emerging artists and actively
research exciting new prospects in the New Zealand art field. We're
delighted to share invited artist Oliver Hill's newest collection with you.

Oliver Hill is a New Zealand artist who has studied at the Dunedin
School of Art. Throughout Hill's life, great interest has been found in
modifying different objects, from anything electronic to anything
mechanical. He would modify or re-engineer them to the point of being
far more unreliable than once before, but far more exciting for him to
experience personally.

Hill's series of works "Copy and Paste" work off of the subconscious
thought, where childhood memories of certain toys such as the 'race car
play mat' can be seen in the works. Roadways portraying a city like
structure intertwining dislocated buildings gives a glance into how the
world may have been portrayed from the eyes of a very new life. Loud
vibrant colour, repetitive shape and form, and unusually familiar objects
give an almost unsettling feeling of a world once forgotten to your own
mind. Now making an appearance as a static painting, forgotten
memories arise, forcing the mind to wander into the unknown.
