Enjoy a virtual art party with artist Sol Hill. He has been creating art since he was a child. Raised in Santa Fe, his parents were both artists. He utilizes contemporary digital imaging technology to create (what he calls) Metagraphs, a mixed media hybrid blending the use of artifacts, generated by digital photographic technology’s recording of energies other than light, with the aesthetic valuation of painting and by using art as a form of social activism through creating hard hitting social justice art installations with strong presence.
“The art critic Clement Greenberg once said about the great dialog of art that “all great art is art about art” — meaning that art which relates to the art that precedes it drives the evolution of artistic expression. This piece captured in the minimalist exhibit at MOMA is part of my series titled All Great Art Is Art About Art is a project of mixed media metagraphs of people looking at art in two of the spokes of the contemporary art world; museums and international art fairs. Metagraphs begin as camera based images which record the energies the sensor can see but we cannot. This series blends a look at the art-historical discussion of evolving perception with the metagraphic discourse of my work on perception by joining science, technology, spirituality and art to tangibly present a hint of the energetic thumbprint of the universe we inhabit but are removed from except by scientific instrumentation or rare extra-sensory spiritual experiences. My interest lies in probing beyond the limits of normal perception to remember the grand mystery we live in and how art has always been at that vanguard of perceptual sea change.”
Hill’s work has been exhibited nationally as well as internationally. For more info about artist Sol Hill, visit his website – https://www.solhill.com/
