Chase Hall’s deftly brushed, gestural paintings, which are mostly portraits, show people engaged in various activities—fishing, surfing, working, and playing the saxophone.
Hall uses what he calls “conceptual white paint,” which is the unprimed cotton canvas. The black and brown in his paintings are not paint, they are stains derived from African coffee beans.
Hall (b. 1993, Minnesota), lives and works in New York, New York.
