Brittni Hall Abstracts: January 3-February 28
Central Ohio artist Brittni Hall exhibits her abstract oil paintings at Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington from January 3 through February 28. An artist reception is scheduled for Saturday, January 6, 2-4pm.
“Art has always been a passion of mine,” Hall says. “From an early age growing up in Columbus, I always gravitated toward art classes as a form of creative expression. Though my career landed me in the technology field, art remains a driving force in my life. I constantly seek to create, so putting brush to canvas is what I do.”
Now living in Grandview, Hall earned a BFA degree, with a focus in Art and Technology, from Ohio State University. Her inspiration to create comes from nature and the landscape, especially around Ohio. She explores mixing and combining colors as she paints, using pallet knives of various sizes, adding impasto to both thin and thicken the oil paint, and finishing her work with resin or veneer. Beyond her painting and design work, Hall delves into woodworking, using galvanized piping to complete self-designed tables and shelves. In 2017, she was one of fourteen artists selected to participate in the Emerging Artist program at the Columbus Arts Festival.
“After working all day in an office, I still find the energy to come home and paint, creating pieces that bring happiness to those who engage in my work,” Hall relates. “Although it’s extremely scary to open yourself and your artwork to criticism, I’ve discovered that others appreciate my creativity. There will always be criticism of my work, but I’ve learned that it will only make my art better. Doing something I love and am passionate about makes life that much more enjoyable.”
Christie Bruffy, owner and manager of Highline Coffee Co., says, “We’re happy to show Brittni’s colorful abstract work for the first time. We continue to support the central Ohio art community by exhibiting diverse styles of art from many of our talented area artists.”
