Dallas artist William Hall’s extremely textural stone castings are reminiscent of the marks left by burrowing insects, or fossilized imprints of ancient plant life. His work is highly process driven and representative of the passage of time, as the application of each new layer creates an inverted record of the artist’s interactions with his materials. By working with industrial media such as grout & cement, Hall transforms the context of these objects from natural fossils into a series of modern anthropological artifacts.
William Hall was a founding member of the cutting-edge 500-X Gallery in Dallas and has exhibited in over 60 prestigious group and one-man shows throughout the U.S. Hall’s work has been exhibited at the Arlington Museum of Art, and the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art, and can be found in many private and corporate collections including the corporate headquarters of MasterCard, NY, and the corporate headquarters of IN-N-Out Burger, California. His art has also been featured in Dallas Style and Design Magazine. Hall’s first showing in Austin, Texas was as a finalist in Ao5 Gallery’s 2019 Contemporary Texas Group Exhibition.
