Kate Mothes of the Young Space Art Blog said of Brent Hallard's work:
"The paintings...are wonderfully simple. The edges are so distinct and the colors so bright that they very nearly press into optical territory. Some of his pieces are perfectly symmetrical, yet the boundaries shift as we run our eyes from segment to segment, stripe to stripe, as the color plays slight tricks on our eyes. He seems to commit to symmetrical, hard-edged abstraction and then in the next instance make a work...that seems to say he knows these are expected to be hard-edged paintings, but see? Sometimes they're not. And to prove it, he'll color outside the lines."
Hallard works with the themes of space and geometry, manipulating images and arrangements of objects in order to challenge the perception of the viewer.
The artist tends to focus on work that conveys precision and exactitude, while also flirting with looser explorations of color and form, creating more experimental geometric abstractions that invite additional layers of interaction from the viewer.
