Whitney Hall’s oil paintings reflect the animals and natural imagery of her home in Bozeman, Montana, and are infused with the colors of her childhood in Southern California. Studying under a wide variety of contemporary impressionists, expressionists, and colorists, her work combines solidly-painted impressionistic animals with brightly stylized environments. Her work has a figurative approach, with a focus on the design, silhouette, and symbolism of each animal she paints. Her colorful compositions involve a constant push and pull between technique and intuition, form and expression, harmony and contrast. “My work is a contemporary twist on very traditional subjects, while also using a traditional approach to the contemporary genre. I like to combine elements of impressionism and expressionism in new ways, pushing the boundaries of each. Through this blend of the old and the new, I hope to leave each viewer with a new appreciation of the West.”
