A liminal space is the time between the 'what was' and the 'next.' It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing.
In her work, Hannah represents liminality with an homage to early storytelling. Stories such as Babes in the Wood, The Wizard of Oz, Hansel and Gretel are defined by the narrative of transition; namely the transition of adolescence to adulthood. Hannah is fascinated about the space where ideas about identity intercept with ambiguity and change. Hannah juxtaposes both realism and surrealism in her drawings and etchings to create tension between the figure and their surroundings to represent this relationship between an individual and the changes in one’s life.
Her work is redefining these liminal narratives and forms of escapism.
Hannah is drawn to the intaglio printmaking process as it allows her limitless possibilities for experimentation, graphic qualities and decorative embellishment. She is equally allured to graphite as a drawing medium due to its reflective and soft qualities. Working with both mediums she is satisfied to juxtapose process and visual languages.
Hannah's work continues to grow alongside these themes; expanding into representation of memories, dreams and the unknown.
Hannah is currently working out of Providence, Rhode Island.
