Personal Statement

Hannah’s work has been developed from her exploration into the fragility of life. The continuous desire to deepen her knowledge has led her to further question the idea of body image.

“I find the idea that life is so fragile, yet we continue to act in a way that we see ourselves to be indestructible incredibly fascinating.”

Intrigued by this balance, she creates personal concepts and explores them academically and visually.

Using a series of images she began exploring the aesthetics of the human form at it extremities of weight.

Her one off pieces utilise a combination of materials, which are used to symbolically express her thoughts. Though the pieces are wearable, her intention is to produce an item, which is aesthetically beautiful when not in use.

The presentation of the work plays an important role: Hannah likes to provoke a reaction with the viewer

“I offer a platform for a personal debate on my understanding of the concept but simultaneously the viewer can read into the work on a much more personal level.”
