Sculpture by Joan Hall: Invasion of Hull Cove, Version 3, available at Childs Gallery, Boston

Joan Hall


Invasion of Hull Cove, Version 3, 2022
Custom wallpaper made from the artist's photograph of invasive algae in Hull cove on Conanicut Island, laser cut steel, hand-painted with acrylic

Site-specific installation. Size variable. Please inquire for more information.

Invasion of Hull Cove is influenced by Hall’s experience of walking on a Rhode Island beach after a storm and seeing pink, fleshy colored vegetation piled on the shore, over a foot deep. Hall explains, “It was beautiful, but my gut reaction was that it did not belong. I learned that it was a type of invasive algae that had come from Asia and can now survive in a New England climate. I immediately took the photographs that were used to create the wallpaper.”Viewers are attracted to the beauty of the piece, but on closer inspection, realize it is camouflaging danger and a troubling message.
