Artist research – Hannah Lamb

The piece of work that inspired me to investigate the work of Hannah Lamb further is  In search of green.

For ‘In Search of Green’ a series of garments are suspended from tree branches. The gossamer thin pieces are almost ghostly, an ethereal presence, delicate as memory. These garments reference a personal and sensuous response to moving through landscape.”

A close up of cyanotype with hand stitch is often used as reference to this piece, this cyanotype is combined with a collection of garments, fine cotton and lace I’m sure that to observe the exhibits in the flesh would be quite a poignant experience.

I like the initial simplicity, cyanotypes have a strong, bold silhouette, and on closer inspection more subtle details are picks up by the process.
