“So Hard To Stay Focused These Days”
Roscoe Hall
Acrylic, ink, pastel, and graphite on wood
ITEM #: 102


Roscoe (Chicago born & Alabama raised) is an artist who works in a variety of media (food and acrylics). Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation. Education focused from University of San Diego Photography and Art History at Savannah College of Art & Design.


The kitchen holds a 20 year love for him. From Alabama, Northern California, Pacific Northwest and little ole New York he’s gotten his chops with some of the best. Learning every cuisine and position possible with full respect to the game and its players. Hailing from a BBQ family the chaos of holding court with a family and 7 day work weeks is oddly familiar to his upbringing.


His overall outlook within cuisine and space is that the energy of a place is always important. From dining rooms to galleries, if abstraction is applied, one will create intense personal moments by the rules of acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.


Roscoe currently lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama with two hilarious children and a kick ass wife.
