Kate Mosher Hall


acrylic on canvas
45 x 32 inches

The dark, mysterious worlds artist Kate Mosher Hall forms in her paintings invite the viewer to construct their own narrative among the animals, fantasy characters, and silhouetted figures. Here, a dancing joker smiles at the viewer, though the shadow it casts suggests it is not just a poster on a wall but something come to life. As in many of Hall’s paintings, Joker blends photographic elements with abstract shapes like grids, frames, windowpanes, and parallel lines that break apart the picture plane in her work, adding a barrier to entry along with the shadows cast from a strong, unseen light source. Hall lives and works in Los Angeles, and has taken part in solo and group exhibitions throughout the US.
