Chris Hill
The Shortest Distance - Abstract Geometric Form, Welded Steel Sculpture

2021

$3,000

About

This dynamic table sized sculpture is created from cut steel shapes, welded together in an abstract geometric pattern patinaed to a soft black with bits of the natural rust peeking through. While the work adheres to a rigid, rational geometry, this sculpture suggests lyrical movement, apparent weightlessness and improvisation as the title suggests. Chris Hill The Shortest Distance welded steel with patina 17.50h x 15w x 8.75d in 44.45h x 38.10w x 22.23d cm CHI011 Chris Hill is a Santa Fe based sculptor. Chris was born in Port Arthur, Texas but grew up in small town North Mississippi. He began welding at age 18 at the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Yellow Creek Nuclear Plant’s apprentice program. The nuclear plant project was cancelled but it was there that his passion for metalworking began. It would be another 8 years before he resumed his work in metal after studying design and graduating from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Working as a designer and teaching digital design at the American Academy of Art, Chris managed to find time to resume his work in metal and began exhibiting his sculptures in 1990. He has since exhibited in SOFA Chicago, LA Art Show, New York & Miami, Art Chicago, Art Palm Beach, Art of the 20th Century: New York and Expo Chicago. His work is held in public and private collections worldwide.
