Rachel David and Shawn Hall both make work inspired by the natural world, even as their individual art takes very disparate form and uses wildly divergent materials from each other. Rachel is a metal smith working with forged steel on a large-scale and Shawn Hall is a painter and multimedia artist working with video, installation and performance.
The concepts surrounding their work – Shawn’s focus on environmentalism and Rachel’s keen awareness of social justice issues, are inextricably intertwined in the real world – and it’s this intersection that the new collaborative work explores.
Their 4-month exhibition will include 4 pieces of large-scale interactive sculpture of forged steel, fabric, video and sound in an installation environment.
