About

Stephen Hall, born in Scotland, is an artist who takes a traditional approach to a modern subject. Now living in New York, his work is indicative of a surging talent, which has been refined over many years. Each of his paintings is a composition of numerous layers, executed without any modern trickery such as digital assistance or an airbrush and the resulting lush density of color and variation of light owns the viewer’s attention. Through his work, Stephen explores the relationships we have with not just each other, but times, places and surroundings - couple this with a desire to portray the underlying order in our increasingly chaotic lives and you end up with vivid, yet somewhat intoxicating imagery, finished with a slick style and intense precision. Over the past several years has become more interested in the threat posed by man on our environment and the wildlife living in it. Stephen has not only been exhibiting worldwide since the early 80’s, but his work also resides in corporate and private collections and has been featured in movies, music videos and magazines. On top of this he has also illustrated book covers for A.A. Milne, J.G. Ballard and Russell Greenan amongst others. I am a self-taught painter exploring the life we live, finding the pattern in chaos and relishing the cacophony of color. Trying to find harmony in the bombardment of images and information, we are subject to. Attempting to show the connection we all have, whether in time or place, gender or eth-nicity. To engage the viewer and be inclusive, perhaps make him or her intrigued and smile, or be thrilled and dazzled, or puzzled and ask questions. Ask questions of the art, and of ourselves, yet, none the less be engaged. Over the past few years I have decided to be more specific in content and confront the seeming endemic stupidity and havoc wrought by mankind. Either challenging ignorance, racism, violence and gun culture or the threats our natural world is facing. Using animals in all their beauty and juxtaposing them with man-made objects, devices or symbols, hopefully will emphasize the importance of the dilemma.
