Review by Peter O'Brien: "A Thousand Colours, by Sarah Hall, is a rainbowed delight. First though, full disclosure: I have written articles on Sarah Hall for various publications in Canada and the U.S., so I was familiar with her work. But even I was overwhelmed by the extravagant and lush beauty of these oversized pages. They trace the progress of 98 works that Sarah has done from 1984 to the present – including small, religiously-themed chapel windows and massive, building-defining artworks. A few standouts for me: the dynamic, splashing gold doors of a synagogue in Montclair, New Jersey; the bubbling, word-saturated windows of a Catholic community building in Vancouver; the rooted trees and exploring birds of a five-story piece recently installed at Greenwood School in Toronto; and the filtered, enlightening colours that pass through her windows at an elementary school in Camus, Washington. Along the way, Sarah has helped to both define and revolutionize the beauty and the utilitarian aspects of glass. She has created work for the Marble Collegiate Church in New York (built in the early 1850s) and has installed monumental photovoltaic glass installations in various cities (the gridded glass collects energy from the sun). The 300-plus pages of this book also include articles and essays by 15 writers, and an Introduction by Peter Coffman, Past President of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada. If you’re interested in glass and how it illuminates buildings and the imagination, this is a great place to begin, and to end."
