Bristol, Gloucestershire (UK), 1943
Nigel Hall is undoubtedly one of the United Kingdom’s most esteemed sculptors. He received his training at the West of England College of Art in Bristol and further honed his skills at the Royal College of Art in London, spanning the years 1964 to 1967.
Between 1971 and 1981, Hall held roles as a lecturer and external examiner at the Royal Academy of Art in London. During this time, he also directed the MA in Sculpture program at Chelsea College of Art. With a career that spans almost five decades, Hall’s work has delved into the intricate connection between the vacant interior and the external surface in both his sculptures and drawings. His exploration involves spatial intervals, geometric forms, and the dynamic interplay of light and shadow.
Akin to the transformation that takes place when we traverse a landscape, Hall’s artistic practice also captures the shifting state between space and form, skillfully balancing movement and stillness.
As of the present, Nigel Hall resides and creates in London. His work is featured in numerous public collections across the globe, including institutions in the United States, Asia, Australia, and Europe. His pieces can be found in prominent locations like the Tate Gallery in London, MoMA in New York, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo. His artistry has been showcased extensively both nationally and internationally.
