For his series Upon Shoulders, American artist Adam Hall was inspired by a classic expression from Isaac Newton: “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” From a completely different perspective, many of his paintings are therefore from a higher point of view, as though a child was on your shoulders, looking out upon the vast horizon.
Working mostly with charcoals and oils, and completely self-taught, Adam attempts to mix traditional style with contemporary. Using palette knifes and layering techniques he creates a real richness and depth to his work. “Art is such a powerful tool,” says Adam. “I strive to use it in the most positive way I know how.”
While his passion for art began growing up in Wellsburg, West Virginia, his professional career began nearly a decade ago in Nashville. Adam quickly became involved with a local interior design firm whose clients took great interest and demand for his art. His work is now featured in several galleries throughout the States.
