The Pound Arts’ Centre’s next exhibition Origins, showcases the latest series of paintings and sculptural work by local artist Jane Hall, which considers the human condition through an experimental approach to materials.

Informed by a previous occupation in nursing, Hall’s work looks at experiences of life; expressing its processes, flaws, fragility and survival through the destruction and re-presentation of materials. In an exploration of the possibilities of materials and their ability to reveal the inner self, original works are altered by various acts of aggression, including ripping, burning, fracturing, smoothing and distorting.

Though they come from a very personal place, the paintings and sculptures in the exhibition reveal the processes of metamorphosis and survival with which we can all relate. The outcomes, though driven by methods of destruction, are vibrant and optimistic; with soft tones generate a feeling of comfort among fractured and distorted forms.

Jane Hall completed her BA in Fine Art at Bath Spa University in 2014, and has taken part in a variety of exhibitions in the South West.  Pound Arts is thrilled to be present her most recent body of work in Origins as part of their rolling programme of exhibitions.

The exhibition is free to attend and there is a Cafe Bar onsite and limited parking.
