The continuous study and the untiring pursuit of more and more images burdened of significance pushes Ralph Hall to confront himself with the concept of light. In Genesis (1.3/1.4/1.14) is written that God said, "Let there be light." And there was light; God saw that the light was good: and God divided the light from the darkness; God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; be signs for festivals and for days and years. This is referred to a good, healthy, benevolent light. Humanity has been able to distort also the light; Hall speaks of the light that pierces, wraps the animals in a container, in a slaughterhouse, in an intensive rearing. His works bear witness of animals soaked by the hybrid and perfect light of our technological age, of the diabolical slave perfection of capitalist liberal matrix. And to represent this violence the Artist uses neon, meant as the beginning of torture and animal slavery: neon gives off a light that arouses feelings of fear, emptiness, anxiety and total solitude! In this new collection, Hall disengage himself from the use of archaic and ferocious barbarians blunt objects used in previous works in order to embrace a more spiritual image: the consciousness of light! In the work "From David to Khoons", for example, the Artist pierces the work "Sculpture" of Taschen! The new artistic products, which are sometimes charged with bright colors, sometimes with subdued pastel colors (a tribute to Fiorucci and Ken Scott), lead the artist to reflections on energy consumption, on global warming, to the new categorical imperative ... "stop pollution"! The collection is also enriched by Siamese sculptures directed to denounce the widespread abuse of experiments on animals, while the use of colored velvet (typical pop 70s) consists of noir games that illustrate a super contemporary near future: 25 new works that represent the light and the shadows, the color and the dark tones of the Artist disdain towards the human race, the plaudits to the animal beauty and the regret for today's society.
