Gordon Hall

    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    FOUR HANDS, 2017

    Concrete
    34 x 14 x 14 inches
    Hall enlarges to seat-size the Ball and Claw design motif that is commonly found at the bottom of 18th century furniture and arranges them in the locations of the four feet of an enormous invisible Queen Anne style side table. These four furniture-animal hybrids hold the body of the sitter in an intimacy mirrored in the bird claw’s grasp of the ball.
    Viewers can see FOUR HANDS in use from 12 to 1 pm on October 14.
