Susan Hall

Susan Hall creates paintings of contemplative figures that are enhanced by a Caravaggio-like lighting effect. While the single, internal lighting source provides drama, the contrast is softened via lacy or arabesque patterns that veil her subjects. The overall effect is ghostly, as girls, young women and animals emerge from behind shrouded motifs. When viewing Hall's work, there are numerous art historical references, from the eye-dazzling geometry of Islamic art to the psychological isolation of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings.
