Craig Hill expresses diverse cultural references and critiques of mass culture through the medium of collage. His work is considered "Pop," and Hill uses it to explore the many temptations that confront people every day from childhood to adulthood. He employs imagery and techniques from popular culture and modernist works of art. His work embodies a mixture of representation and abstraction combined with painting and collage techniques.
