s. arden hill (b, 1974) is an emerging artist living in Winnipeg. He grew up riding skateboards, playing kick the can, drawing Garfield comics and getting lost in the coulee’s of southern Alberta. Hill is primarily a painter but thoroughly enjoys exploring other disciplines including audio art. His current work ranges from contemporary collage to sculptural painting to book making.

Hill’s work is creatively driven by the play of colour and texture. Using a variety of mediums, he creates multi-layered compositions that resemble the aesthetic of surfaces touched by age, weather, and decay. Hill’s work should be explored intimately to discover the juxtaposition of organic detail. Like a photographer framing the world through his lens, viewing Hill’s work up close allows you to frame microscopic compositions you can call your own.

Hill  has shown in several group shows in Winnipeg (Graffiti Gallery, Ace Art, Freud’s Bathhouse & Diner, Semai & Cre8ery); Montreal, QC; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; and most recently Denver, CO. In the fall of 2010 he had his first solo exhibition of abstract paintings. Hill also performed minimal electronic music internationally as duul_drv.
