An online exhibit of Stephen Hall’s recent work presented in Stride Arts’ virtual gallery.
EARTH MATTERS deals with the the irreparable damage we are inflicting on our world.
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 in-creasingly 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.
