New Paintings by Mari Hall

Mari Hall is at it again with new paintings. Check them out at her website, Art in the Key of Life.

“Filter in Spring Time”

The new work is textured and bright. There is a sense of specific place in these pieces, but that place in some of the work is clearly an internal, meditative place.

Suggestive geometries evoke certain energies that almost have a flavor about them. They are paintings you want to touch. Somehow, there are feelings in these paintings that refuse to be limited to the experience of the eye.

“Meditation 15”

Here are some excerpts from her artist statement to give you a sense of where she is coming from and where she is going with her art:

I think of art as one of the Universal Languages. It speaks of things that are difficult or simply inexpressible in words. It touches the hearts of everyone in one way or another, regardless of race, creed, gender or cultural background. Art is a reflection of our shared humanity. It is from this viewpoint that I create my art work.

The new millenium created dramatic changes on a global scale. Exhibiting on the internet is part of this transformation. We are dreaming developing drifting with a new tide of widespread change. These changes have become part of my artistic expression.

Mari Hall – Electric Moon Baby

Antelope Valley painter and writer, Mari Hall, exclaims a “world view, personal, eclectic and electric, is an art lens uniquely shaped by growing through a spiritual,
cultural and technological revolution.”

Her paintings offer a perspective that seems to play on the tenets of both folk art/folk tales and science fiction, fusing a striking and particular modernism with a sense of the universal.

And this makes sense when you find out that Mari Hall is also a science fiction writer. Her 2017 novel, The JuneNoon Effect, “is a thrilling ride through modern America. Set in the not-so-distant future it is a tale of modern life in an age of extravagance.”

 

The JuneNoon Effect cover imageReviewing the novel, Chazz Clarence Ross write that The JuneNoon Effect “espouses Mari’s intricate command of scientific unknowns in the sphere of political subversion and spiritual antagonism. Like a backwards, Halloween ride on Colossus, you will relish Mari’s sudden twists and turns in this potent, sultry journey that smirks the secrecy of Area 51, 911 and other supernatural enigmas.”
