About the Exhibition:

As an internationally renowned high realist painter, John Hall’s still life paintings have tackled all aspects of our culture. Hall’s compositions are carefully considered to welcome the interaction of the viewer. With subject matter ranging from fruits and vegetables, donuts and candies, treasured keepsakes and disposable everyday household items, to masks and stones, Hall celebrates the way he sees light defining form from a very specific place and time.

Hall’s recent paintings from the Flash series, begun in 2014, depict fruits and vegetables, either out in the open or bagged, and set against dark backgrounds or on reflective surfaces of tinfoil and plastic. The works have an evocative, timeless quality in the vein of the Dutch masters. In 2016, he began a series of new works depicting framed paintings that fully embrace the conventions of trompe l’oeil painting. Hall wants viewers to first believe that they are looking at framed paintings and only on closer inspection realize that the frame is painted and an integral part of the painting. These works led to a subset of paintings depicting the backs of paintings. Through Hall's inclusion of details like old labels, hardware, scratchings, and bits of tape, the reverse of paintings celebrate the trompe l’oeil tradition, acknowledging artists across centuries from Cornelis Norbertus Gijsbrechts (1630-1683) to Claudio Bravo (1936-2011).

John Hall will be present from 2 to 4 pm on Saturday February 24, 2018.

Please note that all works are subject to pre-sale as they have now arrived in the gallery and are ready for viewing. If you have an interest in any of the paintings listed in the exhibition, please let us know at your earliest convenience.


With kindest regards,
