Objectifying something has two meanings: one, reducing a person to a thing, and two, expressing an abstract idea in concrete form. I have little interest in the former and a deep desire to explore the latter. The ideas/feelings of love, consciousness, energy, presence, happiness, and despair are all represented in my work.
This group of oil paintings has its own object(s) applied to the canvas, allowing the viewer to choose to objectify in his or her own way.
- Trina Hall, New York Artist
When you're touched by a poem or moved by a song, it's as if you and the artist connected to something deep, something pure outside yourselves. I live for this experience. Some things just sparkle and some people just shine.
This series was made with iridescent pigments in order to catch the light. The pieces are meant to be held in your hands so you can move them around to see how they catch the light.
