The beveled edge is cut into the mirror’s surface, slicing into the reflective material, giving us new angles and perspective; anything but the plain truth. In his yet to be published memoir, Hall writes, “The memories I have recorded here of the years before my mother’s death are the only memories I have been able to access with any confidence. I keep trying because it feels as if my life depends upon it.” The drive to remember but also to create new memories drove Hall to produce thousands of recorded moments populated by animals, people, plants, shadow, and most importantly, light. As an artist, he was unafraid to step in and out of shadow, to duck into the bevels of every mirror, and to produce reflections of a world that were previously unknown – newly minted truths to be remembered.
