Stev'nn Hall


For Hamilton-based artist Stev’nn Hall, his weathered and dramatic images take the viewer on a tour featuring lucid florals, romantic skies, pop references and bloody faces. Within his body of work, there is evidence of luminous beauty in some pieces, and suggestions of dark struggle in others - each piece reveals a dual nature marked by a quiet introspection that conjures both magic and menace.


Hall’s series titled “Duel Identities” epitomizes this duality. Figures positioned to confront themselves evoke conflicting forces—a literal embodiment of inner struggles.


Although sometimes a disciplined portrait painter, or landscape photographer, he most often uses mixed media, combining painting, collage, and photography to creates and construct his images as fictive places and events, fables and dark lures meant to draw the viewer in. Early in his career, Hall made experimental films and there remains an air of narrative to his work, as if his images are still telling a story. Hall has also shown his taste for transformation - for evidencing how self-identity can be freed from restrictions.


His constructed images are sensuous, dramatic and dreamily alluring. Each feels like a seductive puzzle drawing you in toward some sort of epiphany.
