Modern Times is thrilled to present Myths, Moons and Mountains the first solo exhibition by emerging Melbourne artist Hannah Nowlan. Opening Thursday 11 May, this show is a definitive body of work, bringing together Hannah’s distinctive abstract style and newly developed themes from her residency in Lisbon, Portugal.
This series explores the young artist’s strong connection with the coastal landscape depicted through bold shapes, overlapping planes of glaze and colour, a muted earthy palate and subtle strokes of texture. Harking back to the modernist influences of Bauhaus these works are distinctly contemporary using confident strokes and designs.
“My art has always paid homage to the rugged yet relaxed atmosphere of the Victorian coastline, my travel through Portugal and Spain has evolved these elements further, resulting in new motifs and narratives,” explains Hannah.
The exhibition will feature works on paper and for the first time, Hannah will work on canvas, pushing the boundaries of her materials and establishing her practice with more confidence and experience. The show promises to set a pivotal new path for the emerging artist.
Opening 6-8pm,Thursday 11 May 2017.
