Med tegning, skulptur og digitale 3d modeller søker Pete Hillstrom å belyse samtidens vestlige samfunn og kultur, med fokus på midvestens amerikana.
Carefree Avenue presents a diverse body of work that concerns itself with aspects of contemporary western society and culture with a focus on suburban midwestern americana. Utilizing methods of drawing, sculpture and digital 3d-modeling, the works seek to illuminate aspects of the modern human condition, touching upon themes of consumption, idolatry and aspiration. Darkly humorous, the imagery aims to simultaneously present an homage to conflicted nostalgia through representations that are both observational and illusory, reflecting upon modern society while serving as personal inquiry.
Pete Hillstrom is a Bergen based visual artist from Chicago. His practice has developed into a multidisciplinary form of image-making, incorporating both traditional and digital techniques into his visual language.
