Willa Hilditch

Willa Hilditch (b. 1995 lives and works in London) juxtaposes intuitive gestures with academic drawing. Hilditch’s performative process sees sculpture and painting transform back and forth between two and three-dimension. Treating each component as a prop or backdrop, assemblages built up of vibrant colour and warped forms occupy her studio as if it were a rehearsal space, creating an interplay between physical objects, reinterpreted abstractions and reflections. Once set, these ‘scenes’ are translated into black and white studies, that in their rigorous depiction of constantly shifting perspectives possess qualities reminiscent of optical illusions.
