Beneath A Violet Skin

HD Video - 2014 - 07:44 min Oil, acrylic and various paints filmed live. Score written and performed on solo electric bass by Perry Hall Artist Perry Hall approaches painting as a time-based medium similar to choreography or improvising music, creating traditional line-form-color-surface as well as painting behavior-- ways in which paint transforms over time. He paints by using natural dynamic forces such as turbulence, thermodynamics, magnetism, gravity, chemical reactions instead of digital processes or "static" painting techniques. He captures these real-time explorations onto film which he presents without editing or digital processing. Perry Hall has exhibited his artworks internationally in venues including the Smithsonian National Design Museum in New York, Artists Space in New York, The Neue National Gallery, Berlin, The New World Symphony in Miami, The Tokyo Art Fair in Tokyo, Japan, Pekin Fine Arts in Beijing, China, The Adelaide Festival in Australia and are part of the permanent collection of the Centre FRAC in Orleans, France. He has spoken on his work at a diverse variety of cultural institutions including Columbia University in New York, The Berlin School of Fine Art, The Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles, Parsons School of Design in New York and at film studio Industrial Light and Magic.
