“I’m really interested in the body and what we’re doing to our bodies in this age of mass production and fast food”.
Within this exhibition Drew Hill presents a number of artworks that combine photographic and print based techniques. Adopting methods used by pop and collage artists of the past Hill transforms original materials found, brought or used into pieces that pose questions about mass production of food based products and its effects on the human body.
“I have used the wrappers of varied corporations as my canvas, just like they are mass producing their so called food I am mass producing my art work”
This body of work has been shown in Hong Kong at the Boom Gallery and at the Auckland Photography festival these are limited edition pieces and each piece is an original work none are the same.
Drew Hill is a photographer, sculptor and film maker. Drew studied at the Ilam School of Fine Arts. He lives in Gisborne and has held solo and group exhibitions across New Zealand and overseas.
We are also proud to present within our digital space a 'Cultural Icons' interview with Drew Hill.
