Aimee’s series, Pine, exhibits a merging of Surrealism and Abstract Art. Provocative yet romantic, Hillman’s work displays a creativity from her subconscious and dark emotional underbellies. With an energetic playful tone she explores self embodiment, intimacy, love and heartbreak, present emotions and past memories. Pine has been a transgression for Aimee, breaking familiar boundaries of slickness and order.
Hillman pushes herself into an uncomfortable zone by working with what first appears to be chaotic and disorganised. Within the deceiving nature of the style, Aimee has created the series using discipline, while letting go and maintaining control. She has given purpose to every individual stroke and distinct shape.
