Marion II
Marion II 2014 will be presented in the ground floor entrance gallery of BALTIC 39 for the duration of BALTIC 39 | FIGURE TWO. Using traditional Stucco techniques, the work explores the material properties of toothpaste, a product firmly within the realm of function. For Hill, ‘toothpaste is a state of the art drawing material - a humble space in which mark-making occurs on an almost robotic level, embedded in routine.’
