“Diane Hall’s paintings investigate “time, light and movement” through source imagery depicting “natural phenomena, atmosphere and dynamic weather patterns.” Rendered in oil on wooden boxes, which she feels “introduce a sculptural element,” her art is intended to communicate “a directness, a lack of pretentiousness, and a playfulness.”
