Hal Lum at Phoenix Brighton (UK)
Hal Lum (BFA, 1967) included in a three-person exhibition in Phoenix Brighton Gallery (United Kingdom) 'OUT OF THE BLUE' 4 July – 16 August 2009
"Hal Lum's vivid and witty compositions reflect a delight in encountering people, places and experiences. Focusing on the process of drawing and the use of fluid and spontaneous gesture, his influences range from Japanese pottery to minimal sculpture, high, low, outsider and ethnic art. Lum states, 'Art is like a big open arena that takes in the smallest, most intimate details of a person's life and the widest expanse that is the world and universe . . . I like to keep an open mind, to open the senses and take it all in.'" P.B.
