Untitled, by John Hall

John Hall is likened to an urban archaeologist: he produces still life paintings that mine the rich complexity of contemporary urban life. He did his training in art at the Alberta College of Art, Calgary and the Instituto Allende, Mexico in the 1960s. Currently he holds a professorship emeritus at the University of Calgary. He now lives and works in Kelowna, British Columbia. John Hall was elected to membership in the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1975. His work can be seen at the Art Ark Gallery in British Columbia, and found on the web at www.theartark.com.
