Hannah Ireland: Stuck in the mud

May 13 - June 5

 

Hannah Ireland, You Don’t Seem To Notice, 2021. Watercolour, ink and house paint on glass (framed), 40 x 50cm. Courtesy: the artist and Jhana Millers Gallery, Wellington.

Hannah Ireland makes faces. As children, we liked making faces too. Although we were told to be careful with the habit, because, if the wind changed, the face would stick! As a cultural value not pulling faces is pretty boring. Ireland works on glass; painting faces that emerge from watercolour washes and impasto smudges and smears.

Within her portraits are the exaggerated flourishes of an eyelash, glasses, lipstick, tinted brows, the beads of a necklace, the patterns of a shirt. They are emotive — sad, hurt and confused or confident, aloof, questioning. Ireland’s artworks consider how we construct, revise and reassemble our images to suit different needs, different contexts, different people.

Hannah Ireland is an emerging artist from Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland, New Zealand. Ireland recently won the Supreme award at the Molly Morpeth Canaday Awards.
