Hannah Garrison is a visual artist and nature lover from San Antonio, Texas. She graduated in 2014 from the University of Texas in San Antonio with her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art. She is continuously fascinated by color and its interaction with light. When she works, she is constantly looking for ways to reconcile her love for the abstract and formal elements of paint with her impulse to draw with more technical skill.
She paints small found, organic objects in order to showcase the natural beauty in these things that are otherwise tossed and discarded. These objects - often rocks and small pieces of wood are all around us. We pass them by on the way to our cars. We rake them and toss them when the leaves start to fall and messy our yards. Hannah brings them to life by enlarging them and filling them with color - to show that they are just as important to human life as they are to human creativity.
Hannah Garrison’s work will be displayed in Formation beginning October 5, 2018
