John Hall: Travelling Light

John Hall: Travelling Light
Library Shelf Location 18.HALL
Publication Date 2016

Covering over four decades of work, John Hall: Travelling Light: A 45-Year Survey of Paintings is an exquisitely illustrated retrospective on one of Canada's most established contemporary artists. Hall's hyperreal paintings can be seen as a thoughtful and unassuming exploration of contemporary urban life.

Having trained for four years in Alberta, Hall spent half of each year in Mexico from 1988 to 1999. At times he worked closely with fellow artist and friend Alexandra Haeseker, who has contributed to the publication with an eloquent and vividly evocative text describing their years together in Mexico. Liz Wylie, Curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery, examines in her text Hall's artistic practice chronologically, placing a special emphasis on his relationship to photography. Having first avoided the medium, Hall later grew to embrace digital photography and image manipulation as an aid in producing his work.
