Hall’s work is often influenced by stories from Folklore and ancient Greek myths and legends. The artist, who describes himself as a romantic at heart, admits that his work often comes from a sense of nostalgia and desire to tell stories. Utilising classical imagery as a shorthand for worldly and cultured things, suffusing the style with allusions to antiquity.
However, this modern work that champions a Cocteau-like dichotomy between minimalism and maximalism implies a more contemporary perspective. Instead, the Graeco-Roman tradition becomes a collection of stylized motifs. The way his work champions vibrancy, colour, and mixed media tactility, elevates these tropes of classical antiquity into a modern and playful style, which often feels almost satirical. It offers an exquisite fusion between an appreciation for history and culture, mixed with a sense of youthfulness, excitement, humour and optimism.
