Sitter in 3 portraits
Hill trained at St Martin's School of Art and Central School of Art and Design (1947-1951). His early works were primarily Dadaist and Surrealist in style, but in the 1950s he was influenced by European artists Francis Picabia, Frantisek Kupka and Georges Vantongerloo, and in 1956 he stopped painting in order to focus on sculptural reliefs. His first solo exhibition of reliefs was held at the ICA in 1958. A retrospective of his work was held at the Hayward Gallery in 1983, and examples are held in several public collections including that of the Tate Gallery.
