Shawn Hall is a New Orleans-based interdisciplinary visual artist/painter who views her practice as an act of participation in the biological world through intuition and action. As a visual artist, she observes and imagines the natural world in its various facets, often from an up-close and even microscopic point of view. Working from the premise that everything is an event in nature—her field work, her painting, her walking, her breathing—everything connects her to the larger world. To Shawn, what exists in this world within and without us is teaming with biological drama that we are just a small part of. To a large extent, her work is a kind of homage to this fact.
Armory Art Center in Palm Beach will be hosting the exhibition, “Shawn Hall: Recent Works,” showcasing a selection of the artist’s most recent 2D works. Coinciding with this exhibition, Hall will create a site-specific installation, “Species Act,” with collaboration from the artists enrolled in her unique, four-day visiting master artist workshop, “Site Specific Installation: Visual Art and Environmental Awareness.” Visitors will be able to view both the exhibition and installation, which will be on view from April, 23 through May 14.
