Light sustains our daily living. At its most elemental – with the rising and the setting of the sun, it demarcates the passage of time and the rhythm of life. Nelson based artist Larisse Hall’s essential artistic concern centres around the intertwined forces of light and time. Smell the Roses… brings together 15 works from the past decade of Hall’s career. Her light-based hybrid paintings/sculptures are time transformative – a kind of slow art that forces the viewer to ‘stop and smell the roses’, to spend time with the artworks, as they reveal themselves and their secrets, through the changing day.
