Outside the Circle by Michael Aaron Hall


Description by Hall: I created Outside the Circle because I wanted to examine the topic of exclusion. At some point in our lives we have all felt excluded, and at some point in our lives we have all been guilty of excluding someone. As you look at this piece you will note the three figures in the front. The two figures on the sides are transfixed by something that the third figure holds; all three of these figures are either unaware or do not care about the fourth figure. At the back of the piece we find the fourth figure, which is the focal point of this work. It is the excluded individual. As you can see she is making it possible for the other three figures to sit upright comfortably while she is being crushed and struggling to remain relevant.

resents a spiritual being, she has a piece of the physical world that she carries with her.
