Hall Groat II Oil Paintings

Original Oil Paintings

Painting has the potential to reveal the extraordinary through the mundane and overlooked.
The work presented within this slide show represents a cross-section of my larger scaled still life work, ranging from classical compositions to atypical, symbolic arrangements. Also, included are several urban nocturnes and landscape paintings.

Through the use of metaphor, I often incorporate various social and political issues through diverse still life forms that are connected with both our consumer-driven culture and natural environment. Quirky associations, involving the machine, brand identity, food, monetary currency and nature, may serve as icons of consumerism, invoke hunger, or question the duality of nature and the machine. I’m drawn to the transformative qualities of these objects. A single object may speak of spiritual stillness and timelessness, or engage the viewer in a very different dialogue when combined with other elements. Painting that merges modern art discoveries with a classical aesthetic, often pushes me toward subjects that blur the boundaries between the familiar and the unconventional.
