This exhibition is the second solo exhibition of Andy Hall’s work at Geary Contemporary and will include large scale works of dyed and ink drawn silk referencing and incorporating Andy’s current focus on dimension and space. The exhibition will be on view from March 18 – April 23rd with an opening reception on March 17th from 6-8pm.
Hall’s work extends the long history within his practice of invention through materials and processes. In dialogue about the work, the artist reflects: “Silk for me is a way to expand the story of a given material, one of the oldest traditional materials.” In addition to silk, Hall will be exhibiting systematic drawings which seek to outline the subjective and abstract nature of mathematical distance. His collective works reflect sustained material curiosity and the exploration of ideas through form.
Jason Foumberg of Artforum writes “Hall creates objects to matter as matter. He is a speculative inventor; designing real objects to solve hypothetical problems. His objects are devices with a potential use value for some time in the future.”
