Canberra-based artist Hannah Quinlivan produces complex line-driven sculptural forms that reveal the hidden architectures of society that contain and inflate our contemporary lives. Through a process of expanded drawing Quinlivan constructs a multidimensional universe of forms that draws the viewer through space and time. Quinlivan’ materials are chosen for their ability to impress the gestures of her hand like clay can impress a fingerprint. It is this hand-made and tactile nature that embeds the human qualities into her epic fluid forms.
Hannah Quinlivan is represented by Jankossen Contemporary in New York and Venice, and Flinders Lane Gallery in Melbourne.
