John Hilliard

Born 1945.

Hilliard studied sculpture at St Martins School of Art.  He started using photography in the 1960s to document sculpture installations and became interested in the technical aspects of photography.  The study and understanding of the photographic process became the focus for his art practice.  In 1972 Hilliard started to include external references in his work and began to work outside the studio. 

The work in the collection, created in 1992, brings together both external references and the technical aspects of photography in an intriguing work which leaves us guessing about the narrative of what has gone before and whiat will come after this moment.
