As master intaglio printer at Pace Editions in New York for almost thirty years, Bill Hall collaborated on hundreds of print editions and worked with many well-known artists, including Helen Frankenthaler, Jim Dine, Chuck Close, Mary Heilmann, Robert Mangold, and James Turrell. On Saturday, May 25, from 3-5 pm, Hall will share prints and stories from his career at Pace. We hope you'll join us Memorial Day weekend at our N Lexington address for a rare opportunity to experience these works in an intimate setting.
A number of Bill Hall's works will also be displayed, of which the Asheville artist comments, "Contrary to a lot of minimalist art, I am not reaching for pure abstraction. Instead, I pose questions about reality with contrasts, random design, movement, and ambiguities. In my work, flat shapes move in or out of the picture plane. Surfaces are stained and scarred, as if seen from a topographical viewpoint. I often use grids to establish order, then employ random means, like the throw of dice, to bring tension and disorder."
