Online Exhibition: Hannah Smith
Hannah is a painter based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Working in oils, the work deals with the strains of hierarchy within our society, how we navigate through spaces, how we are divided and where we intersect and cross paths. In light of the ‘black lives matter’ movement, racial injustices and in the midst of a global pandemic, unsettling themes are forced to run parallel to the euphoric facade of the paintings. The work draws inspiration from dystopian societies, a combination of figurative and abstract elements augment the viewers perception to depict surrealist narratives.
