Travelling to New York to exhibit my work for the first time publicly. This was a huge step for not only my career but my mental health recovery.
Many people live silently with their mental health, with few understanding the impact it can have. Siris Hill’s astonishing portraiture emotively explores the effects that psychological conditions have on an individual, his works reflecting his own realities of living with mental illness as he investigates the social obstructions and loss of identity it creates. Unable to work around the fumes of oil paint, he has instead undertaken digital painting techniques to demonstrate a mastery of techniques of 17th-century artists.
For Moniker Art Fair, New york, Hill has for the first time brought his digital works to life in the form of 3D light boxes, a physical debut for an artist already attracting significant artworld attention.'
