JEFF HALL

"eleMENTAL"
Main Gallery

Large-scale painting investigating abstraction and realism

March 1-30, 2002

Opening Reception
Friday, March 1, 7:00-10:00pm


Hall's large-scale paintings feature realistically painted "trompe l'oeil" objects as an abstract motif. He uses realism to create abstract paintings by way of object placement. Even though the works are rendered completely realistic, the observation of line, form, space, texture, and color are just as important. Hall states, " Beyond the "ah-ha" moment where you appreciate the illusion, there lies an awareness of formal concerns, and the occasional symbolic meaning behind the work." Jeff Hall is an art teacher in Henrico County Schools, and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Richmond. He has exhibited regionally, selling numerous works to corporate and private collectors.
