This exhibition contains over one hundred works and reveals a less familiar side of Hall’s work and practice. The display showcases a selection of landscape sketches, inspired by Hall’s global travels including works drawn in Australia, Italy, Japan, Switzerland and the USA.
"My work has always been about place. I am fascinated by the way geometry can be discerned in landscape, and my preferred landscapes are mountains or the desert." Nigel Hall RA
Works in the exhibition are available for sale.
