Nigel Hall, RA

Birth Year

Nigel Hall studied at the West of England College of Art, Bristol from 1960 to 1964 and at the Royal College of Art, London from 1964 to 1967.  A Harkness Fellowship took him to the United States from 1967 to 1969.  Hall was elected to the Royal Academy of Arts in 2003.  He currently lives and works in London.

Hall has had many exhibitions around the world and has been widely collected.  His first tubular aluminum sculpture was made in 1970.  In subsequent years he explored the ways in which tubular construction alters the viewer’s perception of space.  This interest in the qualities of spatial construction was balanced by an equally strong pre-occupation with the sites his sculptures occupy.  His recent work has been less minimal in feel, tending towards stronger, more solid forms
