Tom Hill originally hails from London, but now lives and works in San Francisco, where he will debut new birds in his upcoming solo exhibition at Velvet da Vinci gallery.
For this new series, simply titled “Birds, Tom wanted to experiment with the way he typically uses wire material, giving his birds a more lightness and “featheriness”, as he describes it, in spite of the sturdiness of the materials.
“The challenge of making a piece balance both physically and aesthetically, the suggestion of strength and lightness; always the feeling that the bird may be just about to take flight and disappear from view.”
Tom Hill’s “Birds” will be on view at Velvet da Vinci gallery San Francisco from January 22nd through February 28th, 2016.
