A Measure Of All Things

Marking Hill's debut Melbourne solo exhibition, A Measure Of All Things explores how structures and language combine to become a scale in which our experiences exist, where the physical world connects and shapes our own interpretations.

Aspects of Hill's large scale mural practice are distilled and reframed through canvas artworks, installation and paper studies, where the parallels of physical spaces and everyday conversation are layered, abstracted and manipulated into new landscapes and fragments of reflection. These works shift between simplifying and overwhelming concepts of experience, showing moments of clarity in boundaries and simplified forms, juxtaposed against instances of tension or reflection in textures, repetition, and phrasing.  These works build to consider our varied experiences and memories, and what shapes the enduring significance of one place or point in time.

Georgia Hill

Georgia Hill is an Australian artist, specialising in contemporary, often site-specific based artworks that combine bold, monochromatic textures and lettering within experimental compositions.

Using a range of mediums, her instantly recognisable aesthetic can be read in terms of connections, relationships, time, place and community. Over the past four years, Hill’s works have developed from smaller exhibition works to large-scale installations that explore how structures and our natural environments are vital in allowing experiences to exist and develop from one physical context to another. Constantly on the road, Hill’s current gallery practice reflects her personal experience of moving fast then slow, continuously juxtaposing landscapes, and bold impressions of the physical and mental spaces our experiences come to exist in. 

Hill’s works have spanned galleries, inner-city walls and even 400ft abandoned buildings in countries including India, New Zealand, Iceland, The United States, Canada, Japan, Indonesia, and across Australia’s states.
