Stephen Hilyard Mountain
February 6 to March 22, 2014
Platform Gallery is pleased to present our third solo exhibition of photographs by Stephen Hilyard, titled Mountain. This series of five digital images of generic mountains was generated from photographs of lava cone formations in Iceland. The images have been manipulated to render the mountain forms perfectly symmetrical for part of their height. These are not images of particular mountains, but diagrams of the concept “Mountain” realized as iconic conical forms. Work from this series was recently included in the 2013 Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
This project was supported by grants from the American Scandinavian Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Graduate School.
