Abstract painting of green

April Hannah, Tip (2021). Acrylic and Charcoal on Raw Canvas. 50 x 64 in.

Through abstract drawings, paintings and sculptures, April Hannah has created a system of form generation that mimics the evolutionary processes of nature. In her studio you will find large, brightly saturated canvases consisting of transparent and opaque layers of acrylic line and form. Beneath the expressive layers of bold color, peak the initial charcoal armature of each piece. As a window into the foundation of her practice, Hannah will also be showing small drawings on paper.

April Hannah received her BA from Mercyhurst University and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts (SVA). Her work has been exhibited at Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York, New York; Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) in Rockport, Maine; Arthouse at the Jones Center in Austin, Texas; SPACES Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio; and Carlos Gallery of Sewanee: The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee among others. Hannah received a MAD Artist Studios Residency Award in 2010. Hannah lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
