Artist list

Hanna Hedman
Existence is frightening and we all have our own strategies of handling and processing the cruelties of the world around us. Our fantasy worlds can function as outlets or survival strategies and a person’s personality can consist of as much fantasy as realism.

Conceptually, I want to awake subconscious associations as well as lure you into my suggestive world that is full of detail; sometimes beautiful but also melancholic and malevolent.

In my work you will find fantasy, reality, art and function. Inspiration arrive from human weakness , darkness, death, nature and storytelling. I find it interesting to contrast beauty with the unpleasant, serious and not so nice; the sad and disgusting can also be something beautiful.

My art reference jewellery of past centuries, but the development of each piece progress organically with limited predefined planning. Fragments are created individually and then combined in a similar fashion as stories develop over time. The pieces are extension of one’s body, but also a sense of escape.
