OUT OF LINE – Subliminal Projects

With a background in graffiti and mural painting, artist Aaron Li-Hill is no stranger to the ongoing conversation surrounding what is considered high and lowbrow art. As a participant in many imposing disciplines of art, Li-Hill employs painting, illustration, stenciling, and sculptural elements in his art practice. His works range from smaller multiples to massive murals that explore mechanization, scientific development, and man versus nature. His work attempts to decipher the complexities of the rapid development in our contemporary age.

By preserving envelopes and appropriating their original purpose, this artist preserves a bit of antiquity and the tales behind the sender.

Von, described as “one of London’s most remarkable contemporary artists,” is influenced by the likeness and dichotomy between nature and popular culture. His work is as detailed as it is abstract, walking the graceful line between surrealism and documentary portraiture.

The show title references the cycle of life and death. It is a reminder that all matter is made from carbon and starts and finishes with this element. The series also reflects the effects of carbon emissions on climate change and the dire consequences this has on habitats and the natural world.
