Hannah Hirsch creates paintings in collaboration with her inner child. Drawing upon inspiration from summers spent as a kid in northern Maine with her grandparents, Hannah’s painting process is an intuitive exploration of natural forms that draw influence from the cartoons and comics she occupied herself with as a child in the 90’s. Her work is constantly striving to get to a place of un-inhibitedness, of viewing the world through the lens of childhood mythology, magic, and exploration. Much like mixing potions out of mud and berries, or building fairy castles in the woods, the reductive act of painting on wood and cutting out shapes and forms further taps into the tactile need for creation, destruction, recreation, making beautiful things out of scraps and whatever is on hand. Hannah’s work is cut entirely by hand and often photographed in environments that evoke nostalgia of childhood memories spent in rural and suburban environments.
