D.Hill is a west coast artist who works in photography, performance and video art. His work purposefully sets up a framework for conversations dealing with race, gender, class and sexuality. Hill looks at how socialization and statuses impact our intra/inter-personal experiences. Many of his works explore or inject post-constructionist practices to how image-construction is digested in contemporary spaces. His photographs, videos and performances challenge our stagnant positions of linguistics/meaning in regard to experience. This is what makes his work impactful and infused with antithetical moments.
