Anne HALL Untitled (Fuchsia Face) Original Mixed Media,'60s, Pink Death Mask

The death mask is a vestige of the space between life and death. It is a mould of a deceased persons face, used historically for portraits, effigies and later on, as an artform in and of itself.

There is something strange about how the mask records its subject. Devoid of life, and even the most life-like renditions are distanced inevitably distorted by the process of death. Halls Fuchsia Face is redolent of a death mask. In a pool of pink, features emerge: a ruby slick of mouth, withdrawn red eyes and the outline of a wavering face. Rather than likeness, she presents her subject like something examined from a distance human, but not as we know it.

This is a hot pink memento mori. Hall was part of the Heide circle, which included Charles Blackman, Sidney Nolan and Halls husband John Perceval. Like them, Hall pursued a Figurative Expressionist style and like Joy Hester and Mirka Mora, she forged a compelling female voice in an otherwise male dominated space. That her career was at times overshadowed by her marriage is a testament to Modernisms issues with gender parity.

Now, collected by The National Gallery of Australia, the Ian Potter Museum and Geelong Gallery, her absence is being redressed. For collectors of Modernist Australian art and those hankering after a unique insight into the Antipodean movement, Hall is a vital find. 32 x 23 cm (height x width).
