Hannah will exhibit around 20 new oil paintings varying in size and price. All paintings will be framed locally in Tasmanian Oak. While still focused on producing sensory impressions of landscapes drawing from her memories, Faraway sees Hannah’s visual vocabulary developing — her mark-making is growing more experimental and emotive. ‘Faraway’ refers to ideas of physical places one likes to escape to, and faraway thoughts, or reflective headspace that one seeks insight within. For Hannah, this headspace is often found on regular wanders along her local Merri Creek.
Hannah layers her canvases with oil paint using brushes and palette knives to spread, scratch, build and explore. Her calming, autumnal palette includes dusty pinks, ochres, terracotta reds and deep indigo blues. Some compositions are sparse, pared with thin, dynamic brush strokes. These contrast distinctly with the works made of busier, broader brushstrokes, more in keeping with Hannah’s past. As a whole, the body of work reflects a maturing perceptive experience — a deeper exploration of things ‘felt’ rather than seen.
