Terri Hallmanís abstract works possess a very special quality, seemingly primitive on the surface, focusing on simple subject matter. However upon closer study, we are drawn into a multi-layering of depth and emotion.  In her pieces extraordinary colors that are super-saturated merge with a curiously exceptional textural quality.

The technique that Hallman employs is dry pigment on paper, adding a clear acrylic spray which sets the pigment in place. Multiple layers are built up and masked off in different areas with various tapes and hand pressed into the paper. No brushes are used. She then scrapes away some of the pigment to reveal previous layers and all tape is removed.

Hallmanís highly distinctive abstract figurative mixed media wood sculptures evoke a similar mood to that of her paintings, building on the layering and piecing together process in a three-dimensional format.
