Known for abstract steel and aluminum sculptures, ranging from small to monumental in scale, Nigel Hall is cited as one of the most celebrated sculptors in Britain. By layering solid and hollow geometric forms within sinuous compositions, Hall engages the dynamic interplay of negative and positive space. Many of his sculptures are site specific and respond to the varied geometries of their environments. Wide Passage (2007), a massive hollow cone affixed to a long curved bar in Cass Sculpture Park, England, recalls the minimalist steel forms of Richard Serra and provides a new, circular lens through which to view the lush surroundings of the park. His smaller-scale, more delicate aluminum objects and his graceful, free-form drawings are inspired by the atmosphere of natural spaces, which profoundly affect Hall. In the artist’s words, “None of them attempts to describe the landscape, but they do share certain characteristics: a stillness; a reference to verticality and its relationship to a place and to the viewer; and a quiet, meditative quality which requires time.”
