Roxana Halls

View Biography
Roxana Hall’s paintings challenge the conventions of art and society. How should women behave, and how should artists depict them? In Halls’ work, all boundaries are broken. Her female subjects simply do not care what the viewer might think of their behaviour, their appetites or their appearance. A self-taught artist, Halls paints in a disused bar in a 1930s London theatre, now a bingo hall.
She has exhibited widely, and has won several awards. Her work is held in both public and private collections in the UK and internationally.
In 2020 one of her portraits of Scottish singer-songwriter Horse McDonald was acquired for the permenant collection of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and now hangs in their magnificent Great Hall.
“My work can be mischievous, humorous, sometimes a little uncanny or even sinister, but at the heart of it is a deeply-felt commitment to the painted image and all that it can achieve" Roxana Halls
