Hannah Waldron's woven artworks are not only fascinating visually but physically, with the tactile quality and intricate process that forms her vision. Triggering that human instinct to reach out, touch and understand it that little bit more. An incredible talent, Hannah works between Sweden and the UK, exploring textures, patterns, forms and structures of her surroundings.
Asking what motivates Hannah, I was warmly welcomed with:
"I guess I just feel a need to visualise and materialise certain thoughts, I find images build up in my mind and I don't feel satisfied until they are out of my head and worked through with my hands. It's a way of thinking and exploring the world that best makes sense for me."
Her latest piece, Cloud in Hand (below) is an intricate weaving based on the poem The Coral Sea by Patti Smith.
Hannah - "I believe that there is a need now in contemporary society for greater material knowledge. This work aims to put value into making and investigate interdisciplinary approaches to sharing material knowledge."
