    Roots, Routes, Reverence: A Black Experience

    Darius Hill MFA Thesis Exhibition
    October 20 – November 14, 2014

    Sella-Granata Art Gallery, Woods Hall, The University of Alabama
    Reception: Thursday, November 6, 5-7 p.m. (ART NIGHT)

     

    In his upcoming exhibition, MFA candidate Darius Hill traces his artistic influences to the iconic and 1980s African American pop culture, as well as abstract expressionist, minimalist and pop art paintings created by artists Kenneth Noland, Jasper Johns and Robert Indiana. The exhibition is in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts degree in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Alabama.

     

    “The round graphic logo of 1980s rap group Public Enemy was an important influence,” recalls Hill, “something I also used many years ago as a collage element. The design consists of a black male figure, arms crossed, in the crosshairs of a riflescope. That logo design prompted me to do a series of pieces loosely influenced by the work of Kenneth Noland, Jasper Johns and Robert Indiana; work that echoed some of their formal compositions and design elements, using poker chips and concentric circles.
