Description

In her second solo exhibition with the gallery, Diane Andrews Hall continued to paint atmospheric portrayals of the natural world such as cloud-filled skies and horizon-lined seas. Light, atmosphere, and changing weather patterns are used to explore notions of time, movement and the psychology of perception. In addition to her continued exploration of these themes, Hall, an avid birdwatcher, has painted delicate, beautiful renderings of hummingbirds and goldfinches in their natural, colorful habitat of flowers and brush. Displayed against blurred backdrops, Hall's work relates to photography in its use of varying degrees of sharp and soft focus. In these paintings there are no edges, there is constant movement and light defines the forms. These works do not attempt merely to imitate nature, but rather to communicate the artist's interest in the collision and impact between herself and the natural world.
