Through various methods of exploring line and form – via traditional drawing techniques, canvas painting, wire and salt installation, as well the use of LED lighting – Hannah Quinlivan challenges the way we expect drawing to operate and be presented. Subsequently her work becomes experiential not only in its physicality but also through a range of conceptual connections. Grappling with contemporary issues such as human migration, emotional cognition, time’s flowing passage and more traditional explorations of landscape and remoteness, Hannah’s work uses processes of repetition, ephemerality and the interplay of light and shadow to open up discussions around some of contemporary society’s most pressing topics. The evolving quality of her practice gives Quinlivan’s work an organic, living quality that creates an immersive experience for the viewer.
