Camille Hannah | Solo Show: London

4 - 17 August 2022

Australian artist, Camille Hannah, and her works are surging in popularity around the globe. This solo show will make take place in HOFA's Flagship gallery in London. This will be Camille’s first Solo Exhibition in the UK since 2016 and it promises to deliver the rich, sensually engaging experience for which her works are famous.

 

Camille’s works have received critical acclaim for their abstract explorations of femininity through contemporary mediums. Barbara Dowse, Art Consultant and Curator, describes the Heroine collection, which was released in 2014, as seductive with “alluring brush strokes in rich, viscous oil encapsulated within shallow domes of convex Perspex” adding that they “…at once tantalise and distance the viewer at that ‘push me pull you’ threshold of vision and touch.” The skilful awakening of tactile impulses and the dynamics of engaging them through a medium that is inherently restrictive, are some of what make Camille’s exhibitions a vivid and intriguing visual experience.

 

Camille Hannah’s paintings are quintessentially a part of twenty-first century gestural abstraction with the addition of being both conceptually influenced and vested in the digital and screen technologies that dominate the times. Her works present the contemporary aesthetic of mediated visuality in a model of art that has evolved since the emergence of gestural abstraction in the mid-1800s. The influence of the screen paradigm is  pronounced in her works, through elements of fluidity and transition, and the perception of interactivity achieved through the suggestive cues of virtual tactility and the creative engagement of other senses.
