"If Only Tonight We Could Sleep" - New works by Walt Hall

Cactus Gallery is proud to present "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep," a solo exhibition
by Walt Hall.

For "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep," Walt continues his study of melancholic forest-scapes
created on discarded wood, foreign newsprint, old fashioned wallpaper and iconic
advertising elements.

Hall's work shows the viewer small scenes of life and death, love and loss, happiness
and sadness. This body of work is connected by a narrative thread based on an equation
of emotion leading to reconciliation and balance.

A digital preview of Walt's work will be available Friday afternoon, June 10th



Walt Hall was born and raised in Northeast Los Angeles. Although an active artist
from a very young age, he cut his creative teeth in the world of commercial art
rather than the traditional art school. Until 2000 his main focus was
music and a series of local punk bands that he formed with friends. Since that time
he has returned his creative focus to the visual arts.
