Frances Hahn

Frances Hahn is a painter and collage artist, known for her colourful, cheeky portraits and serene, abstracted landscapes. The common subject is imagined memory. Future, past and fantasy have equal weight. The lens of nostalgia casts a foggy dream-like appearance. The subtext comments on play, pastime and gender. In this vision, figures are simplified or distorted so as to emphasize gesture as if in a memory. In the words of the artist: "all of my dreams fall and form a bridge of memory where I can get back."
