The exhibition of Recent Works by Shawn Hall, to be held at the Armory Art Center's East Gallery, will showcase 2D works by the New Orleans-based artist. Shawn's artwork is often a reflection of the natural world, reminding the viewer that the Earth is in constant change. Her paintings express a loose, often ironically humorous, abstract representational style. Despite her ventures into different mediums, her paintings inform all of her work. These paintings loop back and revisit the familiar territory of the forms and processes found in nature.
Shawn Hall was born in Ann Arbor, MI and lives in New Orleans. She holds an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has participated in several artist residences and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent solo shows include the CAC and Ogden Museum in New Orleans, Red Arrow in Nashville and Galleri Urbane in Dallas. Her installation How To Build A Forest premiered 2011 at The Kitchen in NYC and has been on tour since. Her work has been reviewed nationally in Art Papers, New Art Examiner, Hyperallergic and Pelican Bomb. She has work in the permanent collections of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and the Linklaters Corporate collection in NYC. www.shawnhall.org
