About the Artist
Patrick Hall (b.1935)
Born 1935, Tipperary, Ireland.
Patrick Hall was born in county Tipperary, Ireland, and works between London and county Sligo. He studied at the Central School of Art in London under Cecil Collins. He has exhibited in Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. He is a member of Aosdana, the State body of eminent artists in Ireland.
He travels extensively, but his most adventurous and rewarding journey has been an interior one, testing the parameters of the human psyche and the imagination. Currently he has been experimenting with choreography and contemporary dance in relation with drawing and painting. The paradox and enigma at the heart of his work he sees as the paradox of aloneness at the heart of totality and infinity.
He is represented by Hillsboro Fine Art in Dublin, Cul de Sac Gallery in London, and Fenderesky Gallery in Belfast.
