‘When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.’
Captivated by the power and energy of optimism, Hall’s work combines the ethereal quality of light with the materiality of paint and form to create an almost tangible experience. This interplay, between the evident and the subliminal, the spoken and the intuitive, is articulated through light and colour and permeates her work.
Lemonade entices the audience to step inside ‘optimism’, to experience it as an actual energy that acts positively upon the disposition of the viewer.
‘The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose.’ – Kahlil Gibran
