Emily Hall
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: While looking out at the ocean, from a porch incased by a wrought iron handrail in an old Southern city, I thought of this structural element that protects me from falling off, bars me from the ocean, and physically keeps me in my place yet, mentally my mind was a million places in the horizon. Seashells washed onto shore offering tokens of what was inside this vast expanse but they also were mysterious gifts of what lay ahead in that horizon. These shells too were functional protective barriers, keeping their inhabitants safe. A scenic view fills the admirer with a myriad of feelings - longing for what lies ahead, contemplation over the past, perhaps even fear for the drop below. It is always a place for a moment of pause where one looks inward while simultaneously looking outward. My work focuses on the vast expanse in the horizon whether natural or built and explores the details that create these seemingly open ended space- thinking of built structures as portraits and physical manifestations of wishful thinking.
