In The Spirit of Place: Adam Halls | Floor 2


Adam Halls is tucked into the corner of a small hut, his studio. On his right hangs a work in progress, glistening in the cold day light. I look through the shed window at the full grass fields, beyond, to the valley and over the moor; this is Adams palette. I study the unfinished embroidery – the wavering layers of late summer yellows and muted greens: Adams colours in Adams place.

Adam Halls is a textile artist who works from his studio on Bodmin Moor. He is inspired by the intricate details of algae, Lichens, rust and weathered surfaces. His pieces are incredibly complex, working on layers of fabric, paint and tread by hand and on the sewing machine, brought together using many sewing techniques.
