About The Artwork

I constantly experiment and explore the meaning of drawing. The repetition of lines and layering of it has become recurring part of my process. I start with a base colour, then start drawing line after line with graphite pencils. As I use very hard pencils the lines become almost inscribed. They are then sanded back, another layer of paint added and redraws. This is often repeated several times until I am happy. It’s the revealing and concealing that excites me. I currently find myself between two categories,i.e, drawing and painting but it is the drawing which is more important to me. I admire the serenity in Agnes Martin’s work but I think it is Sol LeWitt’s repetition of lines that feed into my work if at all.

born in Heidelberg, Germany Living and working in UK My intricate drawings explore mark-making as compound memory. Constructed from layer upon layer of rectilinear geometries, obsessively serialised marks and lines, my work incorporates process as signifier of human response to both the experiential, as defined by materials and memory, and the mind’s abstract construction of form and meaning. These are the words used by art historian Martin Kerrison who wrote about my work. Simply said I am interested in serial mark making and memory. More recently my work has been described as follows: "Between passivity and action. Hanna’s linear proposals not to primal marks. They are straightforward and not at all, as they project and deny a complexity of the art making process. Paint and graphite are adhered at different stages then often partially removed. The aesthetic derived from their removal is not entirely in the artist’s control. The result is the reveal of a process of assertion and denial.” extract from an essay by Jillian Knipe, artist and writer
