Tabitha Hall

Tabitha Hall (arse._.end) is a Manchester-born illustrator who graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2020 with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art; Painting and Printmaking, currently living and working in Glasgow. Her practice is mainly based in drawing, typically utilising the monochrome, usually black and white, and using only line patterns to differentiate tones. Her method of drawing largely embraces intuition, a practice very much lead by doodling, letting the process lead the drawings. Through this way of working Hall encourages the figures in her work to be actively involved in creating their own space as opposed to just being placed in a drawing. The aim is to create a ‘scene’ that makes sense only in the world of the work, every action is, in fact, a reaction, nothing is entirely random there is always a cause and effect, and everything has consequences. Hall encourages viewers to not search for a ‘true meaning’ to her drawings but to experience any meaning within them, regardless if it is considered ‘correct’, all interpretations are true.
