Charlotte Hopkins Hall
1979 · Switzerland
Swiss artist Charlotte Hopkins Hall pulls themes from everyday life to create works of incredible psychological tension. Hall uses characters borrowed from reality who become absorbed by their own foibles and thus fall into themselves while also being on display for the viewer.
Building upon the intensity of her work with her dramatic use of positive and negative space, Hall seeks to convey a balance of the mundane and the monumental or mysterious in her work, and the result of this combination has been an immense professional success.
Born in Switzerland in 1979, Hall attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Geneva. Since then, she has won numerous major awards, among them the Aesthetica Art Prize and the John Moores Painting Prize, Hall has also enjoyed the showcase of her work in an incredible array of locales. Among them are the Palazzo Strozzi, Florence; the Mall Galleries, London; Galerie Biesenbach, Cologne; as well as fairs in Basel, Miami, Paris, New York, and Zurich.
