About Artist:

Michael Hall has worked as an artist for nearly forty years. After a successful career in Illustration he shifted his attention to fine art.

Michael Hall’s work has a personal, almost existential character, constantly aware of the divergence between the human and the natural scale. His upbringing in Wales has connected his work deeply to nature, forging a crucial relationship with the observation and admiration of the natural elements.The environment is experienced emotionally, giving prominence to primal questions of the human existence such as birth, death and time. By using abstraction the artist explores the progressive change of the shape of the natural world which ultimately advances to disintegration. Nature is being dealt with as the supreme being and creator, but is also examined on a microscopic level where each entity is analyzed to its most “insignificant” parts. His latest paintings capture the proceeding of the scenery from the first impression to its complete decay, merging past, present and future into one, whereas his earlier works focused more on conveying subtle impressions of the landscape according to one, predominant, element. The paintings function as an escape to the sublime plane of natural creation as well as reflections on entropy, both natural and artistic. Spending considerable time in Greece over the past couple of years, Michael Hall has been influenced by the mediterranean scenery, something that becomes apparent when seeing the changes in his choice of palette. The archaeological wealth of the country, offering a visible analysis of the historical and cultural layers, provides the intersection of past and present and accounts for the appearance and impressions of such eroded elements in Michael Hall’s most recent work.

About Artwork:

This work is part of a series entitled Gaia. Taken from Greek mythology, Gaia is one of the primordial deities, the primal Mother Earth goddess. The series evolved and is inspired by a fascination I have with the concept of entropy. The inevitability of all we know eventually becoming the landscape as it degrades and returns to it's basic elements. This painting has a vague figurative section hidden within the golden band, lying horizontal and infused into the layers of glazing and texture. I concentrate on a palette that represents the mineral content found in earth and decay for example rust and a variety of coloured greys. I love the way oil paints, especially those with a strong staining ability, can be layered transparently to produce a rich, subtle effect. This technique lends itself to a multi layered and deep resonating depiction of the world that surrounds us.
