The amazing part about travel is how much time we spend looking up. There’s a point where we lack familiarity with our surroundings and start experiencing more than just what is directly in front of us. Those are the moments where we let go of the everyday, step outside of ourselves, and experience the world that surrounds us in the moment.
In Looking Up, Matthew Hall is exploring the experience of looking up through his own eyes, as well as finding others doing the same. This exhibition of gestural, ink-works on paper is focussed on ironwork and lighting fixtures found in Italy. Additional works relating to scenes of travelers, museum-goers, and shoppers in the midst of the same experience, and scenes found in Philadelphia after returning from a trip to Italy with eyes still trained to look up.
