Peter Hall is known his magnificent grasp on light. His signature charcoal and oil style captures a scintillating luminosity which he has perfected over the past 40 years as a painter. His love of the inner city is explored both aerially and on the ground. He captures photographic images which he then uses as source material for these radiant compositions. The juxtaposition of deep grays and blues and the lustrously warm light symbolize the reality of city living but also a hopeful regard for these spaces where human’s dwell.
Starting from the aerial view, this collection of original charcoal and oil works delves into the city streets starting from above and moving to street level.
