Russell Hill uses everyday domestic substances and objects including toothpaste, J-cloths and hardware to make sculpture and installation that comments on the hierarchy of materials, domesticity, labour and commerce. We are reminded variously of art historical strategies including minimalism, abstract expressionism and the readymade. However, Hill toys with the grandiose polemics that accompany these modes with sardonic humour, cleverly transgressing accepted notions of what art is and does. This demystifying, anti-Romantic approach is underpinned by a well-honed aesthetic. Russell’s work is precise with a strong compositional harmony that reveals a knowing and considered approach to making work.
Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods, January 2015.
