Artist profile

Nigel Hall

Nigel Hall is one of Britain’s most distinguished sculptors. His works, principally made of polished wood or steel, are concerned with three dimensional space, mass and line. His abstract and geometric sculptures give as much prominence to voids and shadows as to the solidity of material and each work changes with light and viewpoint reflecting the landscapes that inspired them.   

He is well represented in numerous public collections in USA, Asia, Australia and Europe including the Tate Gallery, London, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has also undertaken many private and public large-scale site-specific commissions.
