Anne Marie Hall is considered an heir to the Antipodean Movement. The generation following Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd, as well as wife to John Perceval, Hall continues the Heide brand of subjective figuratism. Where her work diverges however, is in its embrace of distortion.
Rather than looking from the outwards in, Hall sees life through an emotional prism. In ‘Candy Girls’, she envisions a cluster of brightly colour youths. Despite the colour palette however, a distant ill-ease lurks. Fraught with the desire to connect, this work superimposes an emotional truth over reality - despite company, one can still feel totally alone. In other words, candy can cause rot.
Hall’s work contributes a vital and complex perspective to Australian late-Modernism. Collected by The National Gallery of Australia, the Ian Potter Museum and Geelong Gallery, enrich your collection of late Modernist art with Hall’s intensely compelling vision.
