Each painting starts the same way; one selected color on the canvas initiates an idea that evokes the beginning form with its own composition and design. Teased and stimulated by these developments, I add one color on top of another, layering white pigment in between to create a textured image. Brushstrokes create both rhythm and movement across the canvas. In these paintings my aim is to describe lifeâ€™s emotions and represent natureâ€™s mysteries in a more tangible form.
For the last 15 years, Jennings Hall has been painting and showing her work. Initially, she worked in a hard edge geometric style but became dissatisfied with the constriction of the linear form. She began to create works with subtle surfaces full of rich color, balancing calligraphic lines and soft edged shapes which betray a studied simplicity.
Cassandra Jennings Hall's work has been exhibited in museums, galleries, universities and corporations as well as in private and corporate art collections in the New York metropolitan area. Jennings Hall continues to live and work in New Jersey.
