Evocative of societies cultural rhythms, Hall abstracts the language of relationship; embodying us gregariously as a society while exploring the more intimate states of innocent child friendship and personal connections. Although deceptively simple, there is a restlessness and subtle tension within her work that draws and holds the viewer. The application of paint itself further extends the idea of anthropomorphic resonance in its subtle almost brushed out gesture - brushed on layer by layer, the mark of the hand always evident, but so unobtrusive that it is subsumed into the viewer's consciousness. This is the essence of her work. Working the painted mark against the voluptuous sensuality of the shaped form she brings the canvas to life in her search for balance and harmony.
Hall is confidently extending her process to include both sculpture and light... exciting times indeed. Creating time transformative works of art.....larissehallartist.com
