Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting visit the studio of painter Alison Hall.
Hall remarks that while the subject may be veiled in an abstract painting, its feeling gets "embedded into the work. I think the spirit of that can be felt in an abstract way. It's not like you can identify it or name it, but I think there are feelings inside of [the paintings] that when you view them you get close to that experience."
In a recent statement, Hall wrote: "One would think that, in making paintings about pattern, there would be a defined beginning and end, an image that’s certain and void of breathing room. But that’s wrong. I feel as if I never know the ending. The mistakes keep you from knowing the ending."
