a meticulous obsession
Adam Hillman organizes everyday objects and common food items into visually satisfying arrangements. Calling himself an “object arranger,” Hillman sees the beauty in things organized neatly. Through meticulous pattern arrangement, the artist creates mesmerizing works of visual art. To begin, he partially unwraps Reese’s peanut butter cups, quarter-cuts waffles, and makes jigsaw puzzle pieces from apples. He assembles them in ways that seem unbelievable to arrange without the use of Photoshop: each artwork, however, is completed sans digital manipulation.
His main focuses are color, contrast and gradient. By concentrating on contrast and gradients, Hillman is exploring how other characteristics of the objects can build compelling compositions. He creates cut pieces that combine a wide variety of singularly toned objects over a geometric, cut-paper background.
His works are available on S6.
