Muddying the Circumscribed Myth of Abstraction
by Alexis Clements

“Daniel G. Hill’s ‘Wheatstone Bridge 7[a]’ (2015) at first seems to describe a simple layering of one form on the other, but soon you see not only the transparent sheets of vellum but also the thread through the surface that created the shapes. For me this realization came at the end, with the loose ends of the knot tying off the string — the artist’s hand in an otherwise pristine, almost manufactured work. It reminded me of all the times my colleagues at my day job have seemed to believe that the things that appear on the internet or in emails do so automatically, without ever being placed by a human hand, crafted each time down to the character.”

Dynamic Invention Reviewed in Art New England

September 1, 2013

Nancy Manter, Every Night, 2012, archival inkjet, 9.75 x 12.75 in.

AAA Print Portfolio exhibition receives enthusiastic review from Bonnie Barrett Stretch in Art New England.

Over the past two years, works have filled nine exhibitions across the United States as well as in Otranto, Italy, Paris, and Berlin. The latest of these presents a groundbreaking print portfolio featuring work by 48 leading artists. It is on view through October 20 at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Vermont, the first stop on a nationwide tour organized by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Proving that AAA is still a nervy bunch, the exhibition, three years in the making, showcases the organization’s first digitally produced portfolio, striking a new aesthetic level for digital printmaking technology and serving an encyclopedic range of vivid abstract imagery, while also challenging long-lived notions about what is fine art and what is commercial.

Réalités Nouvelles Interview

June 12, 2012

Here is a June 12th post on the blog of the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in which I discuss my work with Erik Levesque who is a member of the RN Comité and the Administrateur du blog des Réalités Nouvelles.

Pouvez-vous décrire brièvement votre travail ?
Can you briefly describe what you do ?

DH : Ce que je fais et ce que je suis – au sens où comment je me pense et comment s’établit mon rapport au monde – peut sembler très différent.  Tout compte fait,  je me pense peintre, bien que je n’ai pas touché un pinceau depuis 10 ans. J’utilise des appareils photos et des technologies digitales pour faire des images mais je ne suis pas un photographe. L’histoire de ce medium est importante mais elle n’est pas centrale dans mon travail.
DH: What I do and what I am—in the sense of how I think of myself and my place in the world—might appear to be very different. At the end of the day, I think of myself as a painter, though I haven’t picked up a brush in ten years. What I do is use cameras and digital technology to make images, but I’m not a photographer. The history of that medium has significance that is not central to what I do.
