Heather Sundquist Hall is an artist based in Smithville, Texas. Her work is heavily influenced by narratives, nostalgia and quiet places.
Much of Heather’s focus in her gouache paintings is on the details. It’s the subtle floral pattern on a curtain, or the kind of plaid a certain couch was that she sat on in November of 1986 that she is most attracted to explore again.
Although Heather’s work illustrates her personal stories, it is her hope that when making and sharing art, that she can create a connection with the viewer, inviting them to pause for a quiet moment, to feel even just the smallest pull on their heartstrings. Heather hopes to help others recall their own narratives, the stories that have helped to shape them and the ones that they live by.
Heather's Enormous Tiny Art Show #31 collection is a set of paintings is exploring some ideas of what it feels like right now, on the cusp of a new time. These paintings are are paper that is mounted on wood and varnished behind wax (both archival processes to best preserve the work). This direction is an attempt to get closer to the viewer and to allow them to step more completely into the worlds they represent and signify.
