Joseph Hillier

Based near Newcastle, Joseph Hillier combines traditional sculpture casting and construction techniques with live motion capture technology and 3D scanning.

He notes: “By combining bronze casting with 3D digital technologies, I am exploring the possibilities for figurative sculpture at this particular moment in time, when the human body is being constantly viewed through the lens of digital media and the culture it enables.

The new works seek to make the digital visceral, permanent and interred in sculptural form, to allow us the distance to contemplate fleeting gestures as solid, tangible form.”

A Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, he recently collaborated with dancer Lizzie J Klotz for a major new solo exhibition, Pause, Play, which will be presented at Cheeseburn Sculpture Gardens, Northumberland, at their Open Weekend 25-27 August. For further information, click here.
