ARTIST PROFILE: HANNAH FOX

Written for Art Edit Magazine

ARTIST HANNAH FOX MIGHT BE MOTIVATED BY SIMPLE AESTHETICS, BUT HER DAPPLED WORKS RECREATE THE DELICATE LIGHTWORK OF DUSK IN FINE DETAIL. SHE TALKS TO WRITER STEPHANIE VIGILANTE ABOUT CREATING VISUAL EXPERIENCES.

Hannah Fox is inspired by the allure of nature – both the tangible and the intangible. “Rather than depicting the physical truth of a landscape, I aim to express its essence,” the Melbourne-based artist explains. Her work is a compilation of varied textures and dappled rhythms, suggestive of scattered leaves, peeling bark on tree trunks and the expressive configuration of sun-light and shadows. Hannah aims to represent the landscape as a sensory experience, inviting viewers to see things in a new light – “to sense it, to feel it and to be immersed”.
