Sol Hill BA ’95
Sol Hill BA ’95, a photographer and artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico, spoke to the Santa Fe New Mexican about a new style he’s been pursuing in photography. He enhances and centers digital “noise,” the atmospheric electronic interference that is detected by sensitive photographic instruments, to create works of art called “metagraphs.” He recently displayed a collection, Urban Landscapes, at the local Patina Gallery.
Sol Hill BA ’95 works as a contemporary mixed media and photographic artist in Santa Barbara, California, with his wife, Cleo, and his son, Luca. He splits his time between operating the FNK ZN ART SPC, a venue for local contemporary art exhibitions; creating lyrical and mysterious mixed-media “metagraphs” from digital artifacts, Japanese paper, and acrylic; and creating large-scale art installation projects that deal with social justice issues.
