Dan Hillier‘s work combines vintage illustrations into strange new creations. Victorian etchings are treated as found objects, and their meaning and history is subsumed into Hillier’s new work. They are transformed; elegant ladies are re-imagined as tentacled monstrosities, and sitters of stately portraiture are transformed in chimeras, a mix of animal, mineral and bird. The result is part fairy-tale illustration and part cabinet of curiosity; beautiful, bizarre and surreal.
