Two themes are conveyed in Hilling’s work – the exterior, architectural layering of buildings and cities, and the interior of home. Stoneflower is a three-dimensional collage built from salvaged wood – floorboards, driftwood and aged furniture that have been re-worked into new forms – jigsawed and layered with an obsessive joinery.
