Gary Hill is one of the most important contemporary artists investigating the relationships between words and electronic images. His inquiries into linguistics and consciousness offer resonant philosophical and poetic insights, as he explores the formal conjunctions of electronic visual and audio elements with the body and the self. With experimental rigor, conceptual precision and imaginative leaps of discovery, Hill's work in video is about, and is, a new form of writing.
Recognized internationally as one of the most important artists of his generation, Gary Hill has been working with electronic media and language since the early 1970s, producing a large body of single- channel video works, mixed-media installations and performance work.
