Mike Hall – Sunlit Harbour, Crail

£795.00

Artist Statement: I like to work with spaces that are not occupied and yet have the mark of a human presence. The half tones and shadows caused by evening and early morning light give me the opportunity to create the mood and atmosphere in my work. In my more recent paintings I have moved on to the overhead light of midday. Using this to create a dazzle of light on the roofs, a greater contrast of light and shadow adding a feeling of summer warmth.

Description

Mike Hall graduated from Manchester College of Art. He completed his postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Art in London.

Michael established his reputation in film and television design in the 1970’s and 1980’s. During this time he also undertook various painting commissions.

He has had a one-man show in London and his paintings are now for sale in galleries in Surrey, Hampshire and London.

Artist Statement

“My career in Film and Television design enabled me to travel extensively in Europe and the West Indies.

During these projects I was able to draw and paint many of the locations.

These works became studies of the light and atmosphere of the architecture and landscape in different parts of the world. Many of the original sketches and drawings have been converted into full paintings in my studio.

This has given me the opportunity to use more complex painting methods to explore the visual and emotional memories through the use of colour, light and atmosphere.

My current work explores the emotional response to interiors that are not occupied and yet have the mark of human presence.”
