In November, Hall Spassov Gallery will feature the work of Erik Hall. Before founding the gallery in 2006, Hall spent the first five years of his now fifteen-year career exclusively painting works on canvas. In this time the artist has managed to create one of the most recognizable styles in American landscape painting today. Hall’s landscapes are a captivating look at what can happen to a traditional subject matter when brought forward with method at the forefront. That is to say that the subject of the painting is not the landscape, but the process itself.
“My work as an artist is the mainstay of my life. I have many interests certainly, but they all in their own way serve painting. My aesthetic has been built through years and years of evolving habit, the depths of which will likely only be known to me. My effort is not to satisfy the public or the patron. It is for me alone. The process is seemingly needless, laborious and tedious. It is often painful even, but every mark is fulfilling a need for me.”
Selections 2002-2017 by Erik Hall will be on view at Hall Spassov Gallery from November 2nd through November 30th 2017. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on November 2nd from 5-8PM with the artist in attendance.

Hall Spassov Gallery is pleased to present Luminous by Seattle encaustic artist Alicia Tormey, on view from October 6th through November 30th, 2017.
Those unfamiliar with Tormey’s wax based work will immediately be invited into the lushness of her artistic language, but they should not be content. A closer examination will reveal an unmatched technical ability and a profound standard of completion. The work is visually beautiful, this much is known, but it is that beauty paired with a tremendous understanding of her medium that sets Alicia Tormey apart.
