The artist incorporates ordinary household objects in colorful arrangements
Artist Adam Hillman has a way of finding the beauty hidden in ordinary objects. He uses objects like toothpicks, buttons, and forks to create fascinating flat art. By arranging each piece according to its shape and color, he creates psychedelic compositions that are difficult to look away from.
In Hillman’s world, dozens of sewing pins turn into a labyrinthine maze, rainbow paper clips create a hexagonal pattern, and LEGOs should always be grouped by hue. It’s his consistent use of organization, especially when it comes to color, that makes each work so enjoyable for viewers.
While he can use many of his materials as is for flat art, others need to be altered to suit the artist’s vision. In a pencil arrangement, for example, Hillman cleanly cuts the paper that wraps each utensil to create a uniform zigzag pattern. Likewise, in another room, he painted many American neighborhoods in different colors to make a fanciful pyramid. These clever touches reinforce the hypnotizing effect of these images.
