Hannah Gason – To Gather a View
‘To Gather A View’ explores subtle changes and rhythms I experience in my every day surroundings. I am captivated by the way light interacts with architectural and natural forms and take inspiration from the resulting patterns, colour contrasts, and shifts between flatness and depth. Each series of wall and light works offer a curiosity of space and perspective as the banded layers of colour, tone and transparency shuffle amongst each other.
