Ivy Brown Gallery presents Stephen Hall’s Powerful Exhibition on Climate Change and Corporate Accountability – “THE STATE OF THINGS”

Thought-Provoking Artwork Sparks Conversations on Environmental Impact.

Manhattan, Friday April 5th, 2024 – Ivy Brown is proud to showcase the visually stunning paintings of Scottish-born artist Stephen Hall. His latest exhibition offers a searing commentary on pressing issues such as climate change, corporate culpability, human indifference to animal welfare, and war.

Stephen Hall’s thought-provoking imagery draws attention to the profound impact of consumer culture on the environment, emphasizing the urgency of addressing climate change. Through powerful visual narratives, Hall’s art serves as a catalyst for important conversations and aims to raise awareness about critical global issues.

The artist’s unique approach involves the use of traditional artistic methods, steering clear of computer-generated or projected elements. This choice underscores a raw and authentic approach to conveying the message, allowing viewers to connect with the art on a deeper level.

“It’s crucial to use art as a powerful tool for addressing societal challenges. Stephen Hall’s exhibition provides a lens through which we can reflect on our collective responsibility towards the planet,” says Ivy Brown, owner at Ivy Brown Gallery.

The exhibition, ironically set in what used to be the HSBC Bank USA, adds an additional layer of commentary on the intersection of corporate influence and environmental impact. This juxtaposition creates a thought-provoking environment for visitors, encouraging contemplation on the complexities of these interconnected issues.

Stephen has been a working artist, in New York for more than forty years, and his paintings are in collections, both private and corporate worldwide.
