About

Ground Floor Gallery is thrilled to present the first exhibition of our 2019 exhibition season, "Undisclosed: Visual Conversations," featuring New York City-based painter, Ronald Hall. Raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Hall spent many of his adult years in Seattle, Washington before moving to New York City in 2013 to wholeheartedly pursue a career as a visual artist. Gallery owner, Krista Scenna, has followed Hall's career since meeting the artist during a visit to the NARS Foundation studios in Sunset Park, Brooklyn and subsequently including his work in a group exhibition at Ground Floor Gallery in the spring of 2014. Five years later, we are thrilled to introduce Hall to a wider audience in his first solo exhibition in New York City, "Undisclosed: Visual Conversations," opening at the gallery Friday, March 22nd, 2019 and remaining on view through Sunday, April 14th, 2019. A concise selection of paintings created in the past two years, the work on view is steeped in the enigmatic narrative, mood, layered composition and rich color tones that the artist has honed in recent years. The pensive, often faceless, yet resonant African-American figures that populate said narrative navigate the past and present of the black American experience in tandem with the convoluted landscape of the World Wide Web. Hall also evokes his own experience growing up in a lower-income, urban neighborhood in Pittsburgh, PA through depictions of hazy skylines, graffiti-laced signage and totems of city life such as the outdoor basketball court. Artist Statement: My work is intended to create thought-provoking and narrative interpretations of historical and contemporary African American themes and related issues. Born of fictional or non-fictional stories, these narrative images also strive to provoke the human emotion, to ask questions, to spark a dialogue pertaining to race relations involving human interactions and reactions toward the subject matter in various ways. For most of the paintings that I make, the computer plays an important role in the development process as far as color experimentation, compositional arrangements of elements, and scale. The images used for the collages in some of the paintings can come from various sources such as African-American history books, newspapers, or internet resources. I want the viewers of my work to not only become directly engaged with the imagery, but to also walk away feeling as if they've learned something about themselves or about the relevancy of dealing with social or political issues in contemporary art from the perspective of an African- American male. Artist Bio: Ronald Hall's paintings are a kaleidoscopic fusion of urban energy, figurative and narrative by nature. Growing up amidst the crime ridden neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, led him to see art as both an informative and educational teaching tool. Born out of stories of fictional and non-fictional interpretations of African American tales and or fairy tales, his paintings attempt to challenge the viewers interpretation of what contemporary black art is. Ronald's work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and art museums internationally and throughout the US. A 2016 Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture alumnus, Ronald also studied Illustration at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Ronald lives in Brooklyn, NY and his studio is part of the esteemed EFA Studios community in Manhattan.
