Untitled #1, 2014
Influenced by the theoretical writing of Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein, this collage series deals with the early history of montage in film. Hilton creates minimalist juxtapositions of imagery to create implied narratives that are left open to interpretation for the audience. He does this simply by highlighting comparisons of gesture and composition in different imagery. This artwork is a limited edition original digital collage using edited found imagery printed on 190gsm Kodak Satin Paper.
Live Collage, 2011
Performance for the Bruntwood Arts and Business Awards Ceremony where I made collages in response to the crowd. I was filmed from overhead and the image was shown on a plasma screen nearby.
