September Residency: New Moor (No More)


Jaron Hill is an artist and filmmaker based in Forest Hill. Since graduating from BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2016, he’s found harmony splitting his time between South London and West Yorkshire. Using makeshift materials and improvised methods as tools for storytelling, he manifests moments of whimsy against familiar British backdrops, crafting narratives which unite the mundane with the absurd. His childhood love of fantasy fiction, framed by Northern working class, Caribbean and Irish Catholic values, has grown to become a relentless source of inspiration. Citing film and poetry as his primary mediums, Jaron describes his work as ‘synthetic, unsophisticated and nonsensically symbolic’

Project Summary
I’m currently in a small Yorkshire mill town, with a wealth of free time. I spend a lot of this free time exploring the moors on foot. Having been brought up here, I’ve begun to re-contextualise my childhood and position myself at the centre of a very simple question; What symbolic meaning can be found by the presence of a brown, queer man on the moor?
