Eileen Hall was born in Quito-Ecuador and has lived in Scotland for 17 years. Since the death of her father Stan Hall in 2008 Eileen has carried on his research and exploration of Cueva de los Tayos alongside her art practice. Eileen founded Open Close with Tamsin Cunningham in 2015.
Eileen's approach to architecture, art and design is informed by her research into embodied design, place awareness, installation art, sensory experience, neuroscience, the psychology and philosophy of wellbeing, meditation and storytelling, with a special interest in how texture, colour and light affect our perceptions of space and our reactions to various environments. Eileen's artistic practice through drawing & painting explores allegory and abstract symbolism as a medium to understand our subjective experience of place and space.
