Bill Hall

Bill Hall’s current work originated in the disused and nettle-encroached buildings which surround what was his grandparent’s old smallholding in the West of Ireland. A fascination with abandoned sites of human habitation also led him to a study of the ‘weeds’ themselves; thistles, thorns, flowers and even toxic berries, which hint at ancient memories. Developing these ideas via traditional copper etching processes, drypoint, and lithography, as well as improvising with layered combinations of techniques, have been an attempt to convey the atmosphere and layers of time in forgotten places.
