|"Unhindered by formal training, Halls' work is alive with emotion, sometimes starkly and uncomfortably so, but more often appealing to the viewer on a more subtle, subconscious level. Her familiar objects of contemporary female mythology hint at subversion, and her work is imbued with the haunting atmosphere of the old theatre which she has made her studio. The most astonishing feature of her painting is the unflinching honesty which pervades her work. Fragments of her own life and experiences give the paintings a dark, intense edge, an intimacy that is impossible to walk away from"
