Jenny-Lynn Hall has specialized in texture-driven, abstract painting, realized in both plaster and oils. She makes both large-scale pieces that create an environmentand work of small scale. While living in Italy, she developed a technique that combines painting, drawing, and lime plaster, allowing her to build a personal vocabulary while taking advantage of the structural integrity and historical richness of ancient building materials.
For the past five years she has been inspired by the transcendental quality found in nature, as well as its capacity to provoke feelings of both profound solemnity and unpredictable strength. “When looking at one of my pieces, whether monumental or modest in scale, I want you to sense that the particular and universal are accessible to you, and present in every living thing, every person that you see. To recognize unfathomable uniqueness while understanding our interconnectedness is an underlying theme in my work, which uses light, texture and dimension to create experience.”
