Interview for Anatomy Exhibition, View Point Gallery, Bendigo

This weekend we're featuring Shelley Hall for our Artist Spotlight - one of the artists exhibiting in the current show, Anatomy. I really enjoy Shelley's style, especially her oil works. Be sure to pop in before the 24th of May to check out Shelley's work.

Tell us a little about your artistic journey...
I have been an artist ever since I can remember.  As a young girl I spent most of my time painting and drawing.  I became serious about my art practice about 13 years ago when I was in a position to dedicate more time to painting and haven’t looked back.

What inspires you?
Life, nature, colour, movement, freedom, other artists.

Shelley Hall Artist
Shelley Hall's Memento Mori

What are the main medium(s) that you work in?
I work primarily in oil painting, but also drawing, printmaking and occasionally sculpture. 

How would you describe your work?
My work is very diverse and is constantly evolving.  Essentially it explores the themes of nature, spirituality and femininity.

Tell us about the specific pieces submitted for 'Anatomy' at View Point Gallery
The two paintings address the issue of mortality and are a reminder of the importance of living in the moment.  The Artist’s book was created from a meditation on the landscape.  It includes poetry and drawings of found objects such as bone, dead leaves and flowers.  The naked female figure sitting beside a river in the landscape symbolises that we are all one with nature, life and death.  The choice of handmade paper represents impermanence and transience.

What are you working on currently?
At this stage, I am continuing to respond to the landscape.  I am also considering introducing the figure and other elements into the paintings.
