We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to view prices. It is not by our choice. Many of our artists and vendors don’t allow us to publish prices. We are working with them to ultimately have prices for everything on the web site and until then, you may inquire by e-mail and we will answer as quickly as possible.
PRICE RESEARCH / APPRAISALS / GENERAL INTEREST – PLEASE READ
If you are trying to determine the value of a work you own, or doing research for an appraisal or just trying to get an idea of the general price level of the gallery, please contact us through the general contact form here:
We will direct your request to the appropriate person to help you. Much work and research goes into determining the value of a work of art and an appraisal takes into consideration many factors besides the price of a comparable work. Please be respectful with the time of our art consultants.
DJ Hall was born in Los Angeles in 1951. She remains there today, painting from her studio in Venice Beach. Hall’s signature paintings emphasize an idyllic lifestyle synonymous with Southern California, inspired by the artist’s earliest sun-speckled poolside memories. Although her hyper-detailed work draws upon the foundations of photorealism, each piece is actually a highly contrived composite of both real and imagined scenarios. Hall’s process often involves a live photo shoot with models, after which she edits and reassembles the visual information in order to produce a painting that sparkles with a more extraordinary sense of magical reality. In Hall’s vivid worlds we find a diary of images where leisurely people momentarily freeze the passage of time and enjoy the fleeting, joyous moments of a life well lived. Although women, water, and architecture recur in her work, Hall’s primary focus is in representing the myriad prismatic complexities of light. Since receiving her B.F.A. from the University of Southern California in 1973, Hall has exhibited widely throughout the United States. Her work is featured in many corporate and public collections including the American University in Washington D.C., Bank of America, The Buck Collection, GTE, and the Long Beach Museum of Art in Southern California, The Phoenix Art Museum, The Palm Springs Art Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
