Tom Hall is a mid-career artist who primarily constructs with cardboard. His techniques are versatile and adaptive, creating political and social commentary often based on his boyhood experiences.
Since relocating to the U.S., Hall has taken on the role of frontiersman to immerse himself into a new wild world. He points to the false romantic past propagated by Roosevelt and takes a fresh look at the American myth.
Hall’s work is often big and theatrical and made on site in the gallery or the allocated space. He is responsive to situations, the people, and environments around him in the development of the work.
Hall’s work has been shown internationally, including Villa Favard, Florence; Stone Quarry Art Park, New York; Les Tombées de la Nuit, Rennes International Arts Festival, France; and Key Arts, Newport, Isle of Wight. Hall was commissioned by artSOUTH to produce a public work at the High Down Rocket Testing Center on the Isle of Wight. The project re-imagines the British space program test site in the 50s in the grips of the Cold War when the predictive "Doomsday Clock" was set at its closest to midnight.
