"Behind the Lines" is an apt description for the Salt Lake Art Center's exhibition of Hall's drawings and sculptures. What happens behind, and indeed beyond, their physical presence yields the content of these works. Through his mixed-media drawings in particular, Hall endeavors to give form to his subjectivity, to literally draw it as he comes face to face with the objective world. The linear shapes, gestures, and contours of the drawings create complex infrastructures that embody personal states of innocence and discovery. They are insightful testaments to Hal's living int he moment. As transitory self-portraits, however, they ultimately defy containment of his expansive, ever-changing pursuit of knowledge. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
