Gimme Comfort: Melinda K. Hall
July 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Melinda K. Hall says she “tells a good story” in her upcoming solo show Gimme Comfort opening July 12, 2019 and running through August 7, 2019 at long-established Canyon Road contemporary gallery, Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art.
Gimme Comfort extends Ms. Hall’s instantly recognizable style of child-like exploration. Departing from her 2017 and 2018 shows where she probed her homeland New Mexico, she says that Gimme Comfort is “more internal, more emotionally driven. This show feels more intimate but again my approach is always narrative and I think many people can relate, on some level. There is a certain universality to many of the topics I delve into.”
Ms. Hall’s inspiration derives from her being a self-proclaimed news junkie. She says, “it’s really easy to get overwhelmed by it all. So, I started thinking about how one counterbalances all the heavy input.” If her is work is any indication, Gimme Comfort is a colorful and humorous collection of narrative paintings, spotlighting some antidotes to the chaotic times we live in.
