Hannah Barrett, Diploma '92 Luxury

50h x 40w x 1.5d

DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Oil on canvas

ARTIST STATEMENT: Part fantastical monster, part modern-day Dandy, the artist reconsiders the figure through a theatrical lens, creating a mise-en-scene exploring the ideas and ideals of otherness with a sense of humor, style and whimsy. Barrett creates magnificent wallflowers, tender beasts flitting about inside an eccentric universe.The figures, both bursting out of and wearing their tight, monochromatic surroundings are interchangeable: malleable beings filled with personality but tied to no specific identity.
