Trisha Hall (b. 1996) is a Seattle-based fine artist. She began painting with watercolors after inheriting her grandmother's art supplies, and took to art full stride at the end of 2015. Declaring as a Studio Art major at Central Washington University, she found a new love for oil painting in addition to photography and watercolor.
Mentored by CWU instructors Maya Chachava, Marcus DiSieno, Rachel Kirk, and Keith Lewis, Trisha Hall spent her time at CWU focused with oils and photography creating her body of figurative work titled, “FLESH”. In this work, she explored the nude figure, body politics, and gender through her use of texture, light, and color within her paintings and photography (Read More). Inspired by the expressive qualities of the figure, she directs the narrative and mood of her pieces through the manipulation of color and light on flesh. Her BFA Senior Thesis Solo Exhibition featured this work in May 2018. Her oil painting, “Smashing the Binary” (48x48in.), was accepted into Central Washington University’s Undergraduate Student Juried Art Exhibition in April 2018, and was the recipient of the Dick Elliot Fine Art Award.
Trisha Hall graduated in 2018 with her BFA in Fine Arts Focused in oil painting, photography, and watercolors. Post-graduation, she has been on a dedicated search to evolve her style and sense of self in a new body of work: An Authentic Self, a fresh take on self portraiture and the human condition documenting her journey in pursuit of fundamental truths, acceptance, and self-discovery.
