Hall’s work, both captivating and incredibly tactile, intends to activate seemingly customary or even mundane images into one-of-a-kind works that, while 2-Dimensional, feel as much like sculpture as they do photography. With remarkable precision, Hall cuts into imagery from posters, book pages, and calendars, creating another life for the paper in which the viewer can engage with the images in a whole new way.
Each cut and curve works to create a maze of dimensionality, with light and shadow becoming as integral to works as the paper itself. The work is created in response to the way in which digital work has quite literally flattened our spacial relationship with imagery, leading us to casually flip past images that depict otherwise captivating subjects. These works allow the viewer to get lost in the folds and crevices of each piece, almost forcing the viewer to engage.
