Member Profile profile for Hannah Gason
I am fascinated by visual energy and structure and finding a harmonious balance between them. My works explore this inherent tension and the unique and beguiling materiality of glass. Richly-coloured glass regions and graphic lines construct vibrant abstract imagery, which I arrange according to an instinctive underlying structure. Gestural mark-making is carefully contained with deliberate repetition and order, interweaving geometric order with organic imagery.
