Artist list

Rebecca Hannon
Cooped up inside during our long winter, I stare out the window searching for signs of life. In this stark black and white landscape, birds are fleeting bits of brilliant energy. Graceful and delicate, they have, none-the-less, the tenacity to survive adversity. To see the silhouette of two together on a telephone line could warm the coldest heart.

My new body of work and exhibition is called "Nest". I explore the strength and fragility of birds through their counterparts in jewelry-like material. A strong metal bird dives down into a delicate plastic blossom. A single horsehair has the gestural qualities of a line drawing, found and flown by a bird to line a nest. En masse, they have a rich beauty, intertwined to create a chain. A fragile eggshell is set like a gemstone, a celebration of the renewal of life.

The second aspect of “Nest” is the world we create for ourselves. We fill our homes with tropical plants in winter to bring a bit of color and life energy. We repaint the walls orange and throw a wild cloth on the sofa. Winter is an interior time when the imagination can run wild. Experiences and materials collected from great distances intermingle to weave our nest. Works in this part of ”Nest” employ found objects and man-made material with notable color.
