Arlon Hall, “Playground”
8th Feb – 3rd March
PLAYGROUND explores the notion of play through installation, painting and audience participation.
In order to contribute to the overall composition of the space throughout the exhibition, the audience will be invited to re-arrange movable elements within the installation and build on existing collaborative sculptures. The process acts to promote the conversation between the role of the artist and audience.
A lot of colour. A lot of fun. Have a play.
Arlon Hall is a contemporary artist who graduated from the South Australian School of Art with honours in 2011. Predominantly working in painting and drawing, Hall’s current practice investigates the relationship between line and colour, fusing these elements together, exploring the moments in between and in collision. Through this ongoing investigation of drawing and painting, Hall is able to communicate particular concepts with the entanglement of colour, line and symbols through his abstract painting. He has recently been exploring ways to has been extend his painting and drawings through sculpture and installation. He is a member of the art collective ‘The Bait Fridge’, where his practice is further expanded through performance, dance and costume making. Hall also works as a secondary high school art teacher and has been involved in running and assisting workshops for Carclew’s Pom Pom Program.
In 2015 Hall undertook a residency at Sanskriti Kendra, New Delhi, India through The Helpmann Academy. He has exhibited at a number of galleries through South Australia including the Barossa Regional Gallery, FELT Space, Peter Walker Fine Art, Carclew and Fontanelle.
Opening: Friday 8th February 6pm – 9pm.
