Hallwalls Artists in Residence Project

An architecturally-reactive installation, The Other Last Moment continues Reynolds ongoing exploration of the intersections of language, architecture, and the body. The installation will be comprised of architectural structures, faux lumber, actual building materials, and individually-carved comedic, biomorphic creatures. The use of humor and the grotesque combine into an absurd play that ceaselessly questions the systems of thought that formed the original architectural space. Movement of and within structure will also be evident, with work that appears suspended between precarious balance and utter collapse, a continual destruction and recreation of the architecture of self.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
