He calls himself an object arranger and if this has got you foxed, you only need to look at his creations and get gobsmacked! Yes, Adam Hillman is a master at organizing objects to transpose them into works of art. Not only are his works visually soothing, but often display a twist.
For Hillman, all kinds of objects that can be used in his art are most welcome. His list of everyday objects includes coins, crayons and many perishable items, such as fruits, vegetables, eggs, bacon and the like. His incredibly fertile imagination and a keen sense of visualization enable him to create unique mesmerizing works of visual art, such as jigsaw puzzle from pieces of apple, pyramid from white and brown eggs, and other beautiful patterns and colorful arrangements. What’s more, he doesn’t use any digital manipulation or Photoshop to create them.
And it’s not only the colorful patterns that he creates but historical masterpieces too. Savor his amazing replicas in his own unique style of ‘Mona Lisa’ by Leonardo da Vinci, ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent van Gogh and ‘The Kiss’ by Gustav Klimt, using chocolate, cocoa, and other confectionery goodies.
Speaking to Modern Met, Hillman says, “Recently I’ve been focusing a lot on color contrast and gradient. Unlike a lot of my previous work, which primarily used singular objects and an array of different colors, I’ve been creating cut pieces that combine a wide variety of singularly toned objects over a geometric, cut-paper background, such as the wide variety of red-toned fruits and vegetables in ‘SquaRED’.”
In his endeavor to build unique compositions, Hillman is focusing on contrast and gradients. He explains this exercise to Modern Met, thus, “These new pieces utilize a variety of differently shaped and sized objects unified through implied line and color, as witnessed in the cut wrappers in ‘SpectrYum’. …I’m excited to see where this new style will take me.”
Hillman’s style will certainly take him places! He already has a diehard fan following on the internet. On Instagram alone, he has a viewership of over 320,000.
