LONDON.- The Royal Academy of Arts Artists’ Laboratory 03 features previously unseen drawings and sketches by Nigel Hall RA. Hall is best known for his pure geometric abstract sculptures and drawings, which show a preoccupation with space and volume. This exhibition will contain over one hundred works and will reveal a less familiar side of his work and practice. The display showcases a selection of landscape sketches, inspired by his global travels including works drawn in Australia, Italy, Japan, Switzerland and the USA. Gallery 1, the Large Weston Room, will feature his Swiss landscapes: inspired by Hall’s annual visits to the Engadine in Switzerland and made over a period of two decades. The mountains, local architecture and landscape provide a platform to explore the understanding of space and distance. Other works on display include sculptural drawings, preparatory sculpture sketches, new gouache and
